Player introduction: Hellinen

Hellinen, #338 (she/her)

“I started the beginners’ course in January 2014 with Kuopio Roller Derby and my primary aim was to learn how to skate. Quite soon I fell in love with the sport, but also realized that the best about derby are the people. I’ve played mainly as a blocker or pivot, but occasionally also jammed. Nowadays I’m most comfortable as a blocker. I’ve had many good memories playing derby, but maybe one of the most special one was playing in Sweden’s Championship games in 2019 with Uppsala Roller Derby I hope to make several new memories with my current team! 😊
