Terminal City Roller Girls Make Friends with Flica!

Rollergirl Survivor Pays a Visit to Her Local Sisters

Exclusive to Commercial Drive - Live!

Perhaps better known for her sunny disposition than her ferocity as a roller derby girl, Jessica “Flica” Smith was all smiles for the camera, as Commercial Drive – Live! caught up with her at a practice for the Terminal City Roller Girls last Friday night at UBC.

Hailing from Chico, CA, the 27 year old Flica was in town in connection with this month’s Individual World Poetry Slam and took some time to hook up with the all-girl, flat track roller derby league based in East Vancouver.

Currently, the league is in preparation for it’s first big-time bout at the Royal City Curling club in New Westminster in May.

Despite being voted off the island in last year's Survivor - Cooke Islands series, Smith said she enjoyed the Survivor experience and the notoriety it has brought.

“Getting to wrestle a cop was definitely a highlight,” she told us.
