Whenever you feel like you just can't, remember that Lil Slinky got taken down on the outside line by Brawn Swanson and managed to keep her feet in the air so that she didn't cut or have to recycle.

"I am an official from Richter City in New Zealand. I have been asked to join the Stats Nerd team at the MRDWC 2018. This will be my first trip to Europe too.
My history: I have been involved in derby since 2012. I have skated and NSO'd at The Great Southern Slam, I have officiated all over New Zealand and at Royal Rumble. I recently helped co-ordinate NZ's first Sanctioned Tournament, Quake, Battle & Roll and served as GTO for the first time. Following QBR, I was GTO at the NZ Top 10 Champs weekend. This past year I transitioned from skater to ref trainee and Ref co-ordinator for my league."
