Doloris Dynamite has been skating with Mornington Peninsula Roller Derby Club for a year and a half now. Week after week, Dolly puts in her all at training and her dedication has really paid off. She’s now playing amber level srimmages –  where she holds fierce walls and breaks her way through packs when she jams. If you think this sport is only for those in their twenties or younger – think again!

Age: 41

Day job: Boutique Manager and Review Emporium

What’s the story behind your derby name?: Doloris Dynamite was my pin-up name! Dolly for short.

What’s the one piece of advice you have for freshies?: Never give up! Find your groove and learn at your own pace but always push yourself that little bit further every time.
