The best roller derby athletes in the country gathered in Chicago this weekend for an "uproar on the lakeshore"--the 2010 Women's Roller Derby Championship.
After three days of fierce competition, the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls from Denver became the Women's Flat Track Derby Association's 2010 Champions, defeating 2009's champs, the Oly Rollers, from Olympia, Wash.
Though the host team, the Windy City Rollers, didn't bring home the championship title, they were still excited to have 7,000 fans and skaters in their hometown.
