MEET: Olympia

REAL NAME: Olympia Ellison
TEXAS ROLLERGIRL SINCE: 2010
TEAM AFFILIATION: Hotrod Honeys
POSITIONS: Blocker
INTERESTING STATS: Infamous for her fierce and imposing derriere, which often mesmerizes jammers on the track, Olympia received the honor for Best Assets at the 2011 Texas Rollergirls Whammy Awards ceremony.

Olympia and her Hotrod Honeys will be playing the 1st bout on Saturday, APRIL 21st – starting at 6:00pm. Make sure you get there early (doors at 5:15) to see the Hotrods take on the Heartbreakers. And, make sure to stick around for the second bout at 7:30pm – Hell Marys vs Hustlers!

OLYMPIA’S STORY
One of the only Texas Rollergirls whose derby name is also her given name, Olympia joined the league with no roller derby experience, but with an abundance of athletic ability and a background in track and basketball that have served her well on the derby stage. While she readily admits she may not be the fastest skater, Olympia’s pack awareness, blocking mastery and solid “foundation,” have earned her the coveted nickname “jammer killer,” and few opposing skaters have managed to escape her wrath. As the co-captain of the Hotrod Honeys during the 2012 season, Olympia is most looking forward to building up the team’s new rookie skaters, as well as kicking ass and taking names with a home team out for revenge.

Q&A WITH OLYMPIA
Q: Do you fuel your derby practice and bouting with a specific diet?
A: I have no specific diet. I eat a lot of seafood and courtesy of my Hotrod Honeys teammate Voodoo Doll, I drink a lot of coconut juice now.

Q: Did you know before starting derby that your famous backside would be such an “asset” to your game play?
A: Ha! I had no clue. I’ve been carrying this thang (and yes, it can get heavy) all my life, and I sometimes forget it is even there.

Q: What’s your ultimate derby goal?
A: Actually, I have a little recipe for my ultimate derby goal: With my body size, I want a little bit of this (Olivia Shootin’ John’s speed), a little bit of that (Vicious Van GoGo and Rita Menweep’s strength) and a whole lot of this (Killbox’s agility). I then put that all in a pot, mix it up and turn myself into an unstoppable Olympia. This is my ultimate goal.
