Exeter College student off to Pennsylvania for Junior Roller Derby World Cup

Exeter College student off to Pennsylvania for Junior Roller Derby World Cup

Junior Roller Derby Team GB member Izzy “Whizzy” Thorne popped in recently to meet the team. Geoffrey Clapp Associates are sponsoring her trip to the World Cup this July. As such, the Devonian athlete stopped by to thank us and say hi before she jets off to Pennsylvania to take on the world’s finest at the sport.

Exeter College student Izzy, 16, has been on skates since the age of 10, an interest encouraged by her Grandad. Since then, she’s gone from strength to strength in the sport, representing at local level with the Devon All Star Hitters, and now internationally with next month’s World Cup!

Despite injuries and nervous parents (it can be a tough sport), Izzy’s looking forward to locking horns with her global rivals, hoping to take the cup home to Britain.

Good luck Izzy!
