Featured Skater - Team Australia's Kit Cat Krunch

Derby Name: Kit Cat Krunch

Derby Number: 9 lives

League: Adelaide Roller Derby

Position: All rounder

How did you get into derby and how long have you been playing?
When I got back from living in the UK I took my mother to an ADRD game in 2008 as she use to skate banked track back in the late 70's in Sydney. Tried out for Fresh meat that year and was vice captain for the new Road Train Rollers. My mother is now my biggest fan and even my little sister Libsmacker is playing roller derby too.

Highlight of your derby career?
Being shortlisted for Australian Team in 2011 and now being selected as part of this amazing squad in 2014. This time my wedding won't clash with the world cup so fingers crossed I get to rep Australia this time round.

What is your personal derby goal?
Every year there are changes made to the game and every year there are new strategies to learn and master. I will never stop to continue to improve my game and also I want to share and give back as much as I can to my league and team mates to help keep lifting the bar for our sport.

Who is your Derby Idol?
Smarty Pants was the first international trainer that I was ever coached by and I have had the privilege of being coached by her nearly every year seen then. Smarty has skated banked track and flat track and never stops finding new strategies and new skills to improve her game. Ms pants is my idol as she inspires me to continue to learn more no matter how many years you've been skating for.

What is the best piece of advice you could give and up and coming derby player?
I doesn't matter what size or shape you are. you want to excel at this sport then build a solid core and work just as hard on your off skates fitness as you do on-skates.
