Hellions of Troy

Hot rods with pins is how roller derby, the US's fastest growing sport, is often described but how does it feel to be Mathundra Storm, one of the Hellions of Troy? "It’s a multi-leveled, interdependant relationship where I’m constantly evolving," she says philosophically, "I’m very aware of what physical activity does for my serotonin levels. After practice I always feel better about my life."

But what is it that attracts her most to the sport? "I love preparing for battle with face paint, putting on my designed helmet, biting on my mouth guard; add roller skates and fishnet stockings in the equation and you’ve got aggression, attitude and fun," she explains, "Sometimes I stop and look around at practice and just enjoy being among all these edgy, forward-thinking characters."

Sports analyst Mary Ann Lynch adds the following insight: "Roller derby today is a legitimate sport, an intense, rigorous game of skill,strategy, athleticism, determination, and passionate emotional and physical commitment on the part of all involved, from the players, coaches, refs, backers, sponsors, supporters,and audiences to the media that is now a significant part of spreading the word about this stellar, heart-pounding international sport."

This sport's got attitude and you can watch it here:
