Jenna Downing

Jenna has been involved with Sporting Champions for a number of years visiting schools and communities to inspire young people. She enjoys ‘giving back’ to sport by sharing her experiences with other young people in the hope that she can inspire and influence their lives.



Jenna Downing is the World’s No 1 Inline Skater, a 10 x British Champion and is a former X-Games silver medallist.

A natural competitor, Jenna has competed in rollerblading events since the tender age of 8 and has amassed a lifetime of awards competing across the globe in televised and major international events.

After turning professional at the age 12 (making Jenna the youngest female skater in the world to ever turn pro) there was no stopping her and Jenna has gone on to become an institution in British rollerblading.

Having been brought up by a single parent mother,  Jenna has had to work incredibly hard to get to where she is today. Therefore Jenna’s focus now is on ‘giving back’ to young people and inspiring others to achieve their potential in life, and she does this by using her experiences, including the highs and lows she has gone through in life, to hopefully inspire and influence the lives of others.

Jenna helped make an impact to young people’s lives and raise aspirations whilst working on the Sporting Champions programme, and is now looking to inspire your audience by sharing her secret of what it takes to be the best you can be!

Jenna inspired our Junior roller skaters to work hard to achieve their goals and she showed them being a female in a male dominated sport did not hold her back. Her positive enthusiastic approach made it easy for the Juniors to engage and feel comfortable with her and they are already asking when she is coming back!
