Roller Derby World Cup - Dallas 2014
A selection of images shot at the second Roller Derby World Cup (RDWC), held in Dallas, Texas, USA, from the 4th-7th December 2014.
For the second World Cup I travelled to Dallas as the Team England photographer to document their progress at the competition. This time there were 30 nations competing, up from 13 in Toronto.
The big four, USA, Canada, England and Australia would remain dominant and all four would make it to the semi-finals, the USA beating Australia and England beating Canada to book their places in the final.
The USA became world champions for the second time, with England coming runners up after a hard fought final in which the USA took the win, 219 points to 105. England bettered their third place in 2011 with Australia taking the third spot improving on their 4th place in 2011, edging Canada in to fourth.
