January 2013 Athlete of the Month
26-year-old Sandrine Rangeon moved to Denver 6 months ago to play for the Denver Roller Dolls, Denver’s premiere roller derby team. Quickly becoming an essential element of the team, she helped Denver win a bronze medal at the Women’s Flat Track Derby (WFTDA) World Championships. After playing on both the ice hockey and the roller hockey French national teams for many years, Sandrine is now recognized as one of the best roller derby jammers in the world. She recently earned MVP jammer at the World Championships a month ago, during which she broke the record of the most points scored in a single jam. The previous record of 40 points was held by Sandrine, as well; a testament to her unstoppable quest to push herself further and become the best skater possible. As if her athletic achievements weren’t impressive enough, Sandrine also holds a master’s in sport psychology from California State University, a bachelor’s from Paris University, and is currently attending business school for an MBA at the University of Colorado Denver. She also likes to volunteer to support the growth of roller derby. You can see Sandrine skate with the travel team, the Mile High Club, as well as her home team, the Shotgun Betties.
