Portrait: Miranda “Mirambo” Abbott-Hannam and her ghost

When roller derby players lie on the cement floor, some of their heat and perspiration vents through their clothing, but not through the vinyl lettering of their uniforms, leaving a ghost image when they get up. This is Miranda “Mirambo” Abbott-Hannam, of London’s Forest City Thames Fatales, during a recent match against Ottawa’s Slaughter Daughters.
