Default Jammer Sandwich

A local Roller Derby bout where the object is to not let the Jammer, the one with the star on the helmet, pass.

Great photo. I like the facial expressions. Did you intentionally compose the image this way or was it coincidence that your shot includes as many referees as contestants?

It is just that they have lots of officials.

They are very tough on elbowing and pushing. The contact here looks OK . The 25 from Hell's Belles is blocking the Dead Dolls Jammer and the Hell's Belle is using her shoulder with elbows tucked in nice and tight, as they should be.

A fun shot one to add to my bucket list, I have never been Roller Derby. Nice job

Roller derby is not something I've ever had any interest in watching, but you did a fine job of capturing the action!
