FIRS (International Federation of Roller Sports) has published a press release about skating in the Olympic World. Sabatino Aracu, President of the FIRS, received a proposal to include Roller Sports in the 2024 Games program for which the city of Rome is candidate.
Starting from the 2020 edition of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, the hosting city will be granted the chance to include a non-Olympic discipline in the Games.
“Finally the great promotional work carried out during these past few years to make the whole world understand the true worth of Roller Sports is beginning to bear fruits. The statements of both Mr. Malagò and IOC President Thomas Bach, together with the continuing and growing success of our international events are the clear confirmation of this”.
