Hey, Jenna, Tell us about yourself:
My name’s Jenna Downing, I’m 22 years old and I’m from a small town called Barnsley in South Yorkshire, England. I’m a professional rollerblader and sports ambassador.
How long have you been rollerblading for?
I have been rollerblading for over 15 years now, since I was 7 years old.
When did you first get Sponsored? (any company)
I got my first sponsor at the age of 8, it was a local sports shop called Soul Motion. I then got picked up by Puberty and Anglo clothing (all you old school rollerbladers out there will know about Puberty and Anglo!) and then I was put on the K2 team shortly after winning the IISS World Championships in 1996.
When did you first turn Pro?
I turned pro at the age of 12 at the ASA European Championships in Paris making me the youngest female rollerblader in the world to ever turn pro. [...]

We held an event on Feb 27th called “Ladies Day”.
The idea was to get more girls involved with extreme sports.
There was demos from the Female Pro’s and we gave out loads of freebies. Guys were welcome as always. Hundreds of people turned up to the event and it was a great success.
Check the video in HD Streaming. Thanks Matthew Dearden.
Ladies Day Review by Tony Berry:
Wellâ€¦ it finally happened! Nope not the first black president of America, nor the fact that Slumdog Millionaire finally scooped a stack of awards at the Oscars after what seemed like a years build up â€“ no sirâ€¦ it was Rampworx very first Ladies Day Event. â€˜A what!â€, I hear you cry!
Yep.. a ladies day eventâ€¦ designed to get more girls involved in the sports that we cater for at our little skatepark tucked away in the corner of a city more renowned for its football, politics and music than for the best location in Europe to host free wheeled extreme sports events.
