GRAND FORKS - Lynn Lindholm has been in roller derby for two years. She likes the physical contact of the sport, the overt sassiness and the vigorous exercise. Oh, and she’s 68 years old.


Under the pseudonym Vintage Vixen, Lindholm plays for one of Grand Forks’ two roller derby teams, the Syrens. She says she retired two years ago and tried out for roller derby the next day.

“I didn’t know anything about roller derby,” she says. “I hadn’t skated since I was 6.”
