MVP of the Week: Maimed'oiselle

This officiating BAMP was the games data manager AND production manager at EuroCup two years running. Her nominator noted she “made announcers feel spoiled with tech, supported the NSO crews through some truly bizarre scoreboard bugs and helped a brand new to roller derby streaming provider absolutely get the derby bug.” 🤩🤩🤩 What a freaking superstar. Thanks Maimed’oiselle for making the derbyverse a better place!
