Rocket Dog is pleased to announce professional inline skater and female world number 1 Jenna Downing as a new member of its team.
Jenna has been the British Champion for 10 years and has been the European and World Champion and has competed at various other global championships and won many awards including the UK Freesports Athlete of the Year award in 2005. Jenna was only the second female in the world (the first in Europe) to successfully perform a ˜900 degree spin that's two and a half rotations in the air! Her media exposure has been extensive. Appearing in many national magazines and newspapers, she has also done wide-ranging television work including appearances on The Big Breakfast, CITV, This Morning, Sky Sports and Hollyoaks, as well as appearing in television commercials for Kelloggs and The Nationwide Bank and also MTV music videos. Add to that list appearances on Disney shows, being a character in a PlayStation2 and X-Box game........she has even been Holly Willoughby's stunt double!
Her recent focus has been on her mentoring and educational roles where she has been a positive role model for young girls in a bid to not only attract more to her sport, but also to encourage more of them to be active and take part in more sport generally.
Not only is all of the above impressive, it's even more so when you consider she is only 21 years old!
Rocket Dog said, "This is a tremendously exciting opportunity for Rocket Dog. It's not often you get the chance to work with World Champions, but even less often that they fit your brand and appeal to your demographic so well. Jenna is a strong and positive role model for women everywhere and we're pleased she has chosen to wear Rocket Dog's."
Jenna Downing said: "I am really excited to be the new brand ambassador for Rocket Dog. Their unique style really appeals to me and the lifestyle that I lead. With such a broad range, there is a style of shoe for anything and anyone! I look forward to working with Rocket Dog in the future."
The Rocket Dog brand was brought to life in 1997, originating in southern California. The brand encapsulated the laid back ethos of Californian lifestyle, taking influences from street and surf styles and became the brand that young women wanted to be seen in. Rocket Dog has since then grown into a globally recognised footwear brand and the range now covers sandals, pumps, sneakers, heels and boots.
