"Why do you feel this player deserves to be crowned Roller Derby Star of the Year?:

Our beloved Sofie Norheim definetly deserves an award for everything she has done for roller derby in Norway. She is the reason why Nidaros Roller Derby is functioning as well as we are, she's a member of 4 committes, and she does a lot of unappreciated work. She always puts roller derby first, and she works day and night doing roller derby-things that has to be done, even though she is a student. She's attending all 3 of our advancedpractices a week, she's both a coach for advanced, but also coaches fresh meat on fresh meat-practices. She is one of the reasons we have such a kickass boutproduction and gets 500 people to come watch our bouts. Even though it seems like she's very focused on her own team, that's not he whole truth, because she is constantly working for roller derby in Norway. She want's the sport to expand, and are often helping other teams around our country. Almost every descision she makes, she is thinking about roller derby in Norway and not just her team. She is our contact person in to the world, and has contact with all the other leauges in Norway as well as getting us awesome boutopponents. Last but not least she's one of the reason why NRD now is an WFTDA Apprentince League. She simply clears the path for any other team that want's to come along. And btw, she is a fantastic jammer!"
