Roller Derby arose in the USA and its origins date back to the 1920s. Speed and strategy are key aspects in this contact discipline. In it, two five-member teams turning anticlockwise compete against each other on an oval track. The aim is to score more points than your opponent and in order to do this, a member of each team attempts to score these point by passing through rival defenders, who in turn try to block and hinder his or her path.
