According to the Web site of FIRS, the Roller Sports will be part of the Games Programme at the 2014 Youth Olympics in Nanjing (China)!
This a new opportunity to demonstrate that the roller sports have the athletic potential and the ability to attract the younger audience important to make them worthy of becoming part of the Olympic Games.
The decision was announced last Saturday and this is the first real recognition for our athletes, our disciplines and for all the values that roller sports spread and represent. The new IOC management is now appreciating the enormous potential that the roller sports disciplines would provide to the entire Olympic movement. The last meeting was held with Christophe Dubi in Lausanne on November 19th.
