Inline Skater

I filmed a really uplifting story recently in Rotherham about a fostered teenager who has gone on to great things. Karen Callaghan from Worksop is part of a Great Britain team who've won double-gold at the Junior Olympics for inline hockey in the United States. Karen had never put on a pair of skates until she was fostered by a family who introduced her to inline hockey...

  1. Excellent and uplifting story. Karen wants to do it because she loves it, not because she was coerced into it. And the mother treats her with respect -- I like how she corrected herself from calling her a 'young woman' and not a 'girl'.
