Leethal - #LD50
Skater name and number:
What's the story behind your name?
After starting derby as Lee, I later became Leethal. When it comes to getting things done, I kill it!
What's the story behind your number?
LD50 is the amount of the substance required to kill 50% of the population. It's also a great Mudvayne album.
What's your primary position?
Referee and WFTDA Rep
When did you begin to play derby?
I'm just about to finish my 5th season with JSRG.
How'd you get into derby?
I came to see a family member play in the JSRG Championships. I was hooked and thought to myself "I have to give this derby thing a try"
You dedicate a lot of time to derby, so what has derby done for you?
A sense of community and family that I would never have had without it. I've met so many incredible people through derby. I wouldn't change it for the world.
Any skater that gets up after being knocked down is an idol to me. Their sense of perseverance and determination are qualities I admire in every skater.
What skates and wheels do you sport?
Riedell skates...my wheels are always changing. I'm kind of a wheel collector.
Favorite derby moment?
Wow, there are so many I simply couldn't pick just one.
I like roller derby (of course), gardening, art and heavy metal. I dislike driving, early mornings, and rude people.
I always entertain the idea of playing again one day. Maybe....you never know!
