Loren Mutch is a pro roller derby player for USA Roller Derby and the Rose City Rollers in Portland, OR. Over her 12-year skating career she has earned four international championships, a championship MVP, and a World Cup title.
At just 14 years old she started skating in a junior league in her hometown of Port Orchard, WA. Loren quickly fell in love with the competitiveness and community of roller derby. Once she turned 18, she moved to Portland to join the Rose City Rollers, and hasn't looked back since.
In 2017 she signed on with Red Bull as a sponsored athlete. She puts in hard work at the gym, and as an elite athlete, focuses on the importance of her mental game, and recovery. Loren is also a coach and travels the world to teach roller derby leagues in countries all around the globe. Her team has played in the Championship game for the past 6 years, and in the 2020 season they're chasing another Championship.
Outside of skating, Loren likes fried chicken, border collies, and rest days.
