I have had a few people ask me recently if I have heard of a girl from Helsinki, Finland called Kaili Randmae. I hadn’t until Kaili released this video today of her KILLING it in her lovely new Razors Jenna Downing skates. Kaili is without a doubt the new girl to watch out for! I hope to skate with you soon Kaili! Thanks for making the video!
I recently did an interview for OnlineSkating.com about the release of my pro skate. Read all about the skate, how I designed it, and why supporting Breast Cancer was so important to me:
Arguably one of the most deserved pro skates to ever come out, the Razors Jenna Downing Pro SL Skate is an amazing symbol of success and achievement for Jenna Downing. Over the course of her skating career Jenna has won just about every major competition there has been, from X-Games medals to World Championship titles, she has won it all. One of Jenna’s biggest supporters throughout her skating career has been Razor Skates, who decided to reward Jenna for all her hard work and commitment to the sport by giving Jenna her own pro skate.
This video documents some very rare footage of Jenna competing at contests throughout her career, with a voice over from skating legend Arlo Eisenberg during the World Championship Finals. Directed by Simon Mulvaney the producer of the Ground Control DVD filmed at Rampworx Skatepark.
During the process of designing the skate, Jenna suffered from a Breast Cancer scare and decided that she wanted to draw awareness to the dangers of Breast Cancer that affect women across the world. This has been symbolised by having a pink ribbon on the side of the skate. However, Jenna didn’t want to stop there as she has agreed to donate 100% of the profit she would make from this skate to Breast Cancer Care to help support their continued research.

On Saturday I appeared live on the brand new Sky Sports children’s show ‘Game Changers’, which aims to get kids off the sofa and into doing something active. I had the privilege of being the first athlete on the show to deliver a skills session teaching children the basics of inline skating.
If you happened to miss the show on Saturday then you can see my skills session here
You can also download my top tips to get started in inline skating here
It was a fantastic experience and will hopefully now see lots of children around the country going out and starting skating! Fingers crossed!
See some photos below of me with presenters Darren Campbell and Di Dougherty. Louis Smith, Britain’s most successful gymnast, was also on the show with a pair of skates on!
A big thank you goes out to Prestatyn High School for working with me on this one! All of the students and P.E teacher John were fantastic to work with and the students were a pleasure to teach!
This Saturday I am going to be delivering a live inline skating skills session on the brand new Sky Sports Children’s show ‘Game Changers.’
The programme, hosted by Olympic gold medallist Darren Campbell and Sky Sports presenter Di Dougherty, kicks off at 9am and can be viewed on either Sky Sports, Sky 2 or Pick TV (YES SKY SPORTS IS FREE FOR ONE DAY ONLY!)
Sky Sports managing director, Barney Francis added: “We love sport and believe in its power to inspire young people to get active, have fun and learn new skills.”
“Game Changers is the first show of its kind and a brilliant addition to the Sky Sports schedule – I know my own kids will love it. Alongside Sky Sports Living for Sport, Sky Ride and the Sky Sports Scholarships scheme, it’s another demonstration of our commitment to all levels of sport from elite level to grass roots.”
Game Changers will draw on the expertise of many of the 75 athlete mentors who are part of Sky Sports Living for Sport, the free initiative that uses sports stars to inspire young people in a third of all UK secondary schools.
PLEASE EVERYBODY TUNE IN! 9AM THIS SATURDAY!
