I’m back from Junior World Cup in Kent, WA, and we had such a blast! I’ll have a full rundown soon about my experience at the event, but all I can say is WOW! The skill level of play was ah-mah-zing to watch, the vibe was electric, and Team Canada played their hearts out. What an exciting event to be a part of, as a vendor, a sponsor and as a fangirl! I can’t say enough about how proud we are here at Pivotstar to have helped Team Canada get to the big show. Didn’t they look fantastic out there in their Pivotstar jerseys and Canada Pants?
Okay, enough general gushing; let’s get up close and personal. This week’s featured Team Canada player is the impressive Goldie Lex. Besides being a TC skater, she is on not one but three other teams! Her home team is the Candy Crushers Junior Roller Derby out of Nanaimo, BC, and she also skates with the Harbour City Rollers and the Vancouver Island All-Stars. When she’s not playing for nearly every team on Vancouver Island, she is also a referee with the Harbour Patrol and an occasional coach. I’m not entirely sure when she sleeps, eats or goes to school, but I’m sure it’s all on the up and up.
We sat down with Goldie just before she left for the World Cup to find out what she loves about this crazy sport and who makes her starstruck.
“I love that I can be myself, and the people I’m around are loving and so fun, and it’s a sport that I can do with my mom.” Awww, my heart!
P.S We’re a proud sponsor of Team Canada Junior Roller Derby, and ***your team’s name here***! If your team is interested in being sponsored by Pivotstar, check out our Team Sponsorship page. This could be you! —–>
