If a skater from an opposing team were to size up Envy Atoms of the Boardwalk Bombshells and label her as the friendly blonde with the sweet smile, she would be right. And she would be dead wrong.
Envy Atoms first fell in love with roller derby when she saw it on television at the age of thirteen. As there were no junior derby leagues nearby, she had to wait five years to become "of age." Naturally, she passed the time developing her killer martial arts skills. In January of 2011 Envy finally was able to join the Monterey Bay Derby Dames. In her first season skating she was a jammer known as Rainbow -- the name coming from her colorful outfits and the rainbow wheels on her first pair of skates. Envy quickly became captain of one of MBDD's home teams, and dominated on the Beasts of Eden, their all star travel team. At the end of the 2012 season, Envy transferred to the Santa Cruz Derby Girls. She found her niche on the Boardwalk Bombshells for the 2013 season where she helped lead the team to the first ever Division II Championship bout in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Envy is positive, supportive, and friendly with everyone. She has even been elected by her SCDG league mates to be a Derby Ambassador, meaning that she helps to handle any conflict resolution between league members that may arise. But as we said before, do not be fooled by Envy's adorable appearance. All of her league mates agree: she will crush you. Her killer timing and hip checks send opponents flying and fans cheering.
So the next time you see Envy line up on the track, take note of her sweet smile, but beware that a brutal derby player is just beneath the surface!
