MOUNT VERNON — When Tashina Langdon walked into her first Central Ohio Roller Derby practice, the other skaters thought she was someone else.

“I have a doppleganger named Robin, who is the coach’s girlfriend,” Langdon said. “They thought I was her.”

The skaters began calling her “R2” for Robin II.

One year later, going by the name “R2Diva” as part of CORD’s “B” team, Stardust, Langdon earned her first award when she was named Best Blocker in her team’s 374-144 victory over Roundtown Roller Derby on Saturday.
