The tournament MVP was Klein of Denver Roller Derby, selected by the WFTDA Board of Directors for embodying the WFTDA’s values of being real, strong, athletic, and revolutionary on and off the track. Klein’s performance this weekend was “a highlight reel of agile line-work, lateral movement, and consistently beating blockers attempting to run her back,” said WFTDA Vice President Deadeye while presenting the award.
