Everything you need to kow about the World’s Current Top Rollerblader – Joe Atkinson

Currently at 23 years of age, the story of this young lad found its beginning 19 years ago in a small British town of Pontefract, located in West Yorkshire. He could skate even before he could walk, and he was exposed to constant ovations of the local working class, only to reach the level he is currently at – one of the most successful competitors in the history of this sport. What undoubtedly launched his career was the run he did in 2015 – from a local skater of a small town in Northern England to an athlete who is nowadays devotedly followed by many, Joe definitely deserves the titles he was given. He is the current British and FISE Inline champion and just last year he was awarded with the title of the best blader of 2015!

Joe is basically a self-funded nomad who is wandering through international and professional fields of the sport he likes, the sport which is his entire life.
As said by his friend, Jake Eley: ”He is one of the people, so he’s definitely doing it for the people.”
