Tash Bandicoot 3012

What’s the inspiration behind your derby name?
Crash Bandicoot! My love of puns and childhood gaming.

What’s the inspiration behind your number?
My birthday, 30/12.

What was your funniest roller derby moment?
I’m one for falling flat on my butt and just laughing my head off about it. Every fall is funny!

How did you first discover roller derby / what convinced you to join?
Classic tale of watching Whip It and wanting to be the next Ellen Page.

What have you learned from roller derby?
To love my derby booty and be patient with how I learn things. Some skaters can pick up a new skill quickly. Others (me) may take longer. Embrace it, take each day one skate at a time! To quote RuPaul: “if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gon’ love somebody else?!”

Who are your roller derby heroes?
Turbo Therock Johnson (Adelaide Roller Derby) and Lady Trample (Victorian Roller Derby League). Both badass ladies from down under, wicked skaters and awesome people.

Most embarrassing moment at a game / practice?
Realising that my leggings were uber seethrough and everyone who skated behind me could clearly see my undies.
