Competing since 2011, Derrek Coccimiglio is recognized as a seasoned veteran in the sport of Ice Cross Downhill. From battling fires in his home town as a Professional Firefighter, to soaring down ice cross tracks around the world, it's clear that he is an adrenaline enthusiast. Derrek was introduced to skating at the age of 3 and later went onto play junior hockey in the GOJHL. He first saw Ice Cross Downhill on a tv commercial and quickly became a familiar face in the sport. At the end of the day Derrek is an athlete chasing a dream and hopes he can inspire others to do the same along the way.
