FIRS Skating Videos Tell the Whole Roller Sports Story

By February 4, 2009

Follow me on:

In November of 2008, the Federation Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS) presented a Roller Speed Skating Proposal to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Sports Commission in Lausanne. FIRS came armed with five presentation videos which were presented by the FIRS President, the FIRS Secretary General and accompanied by two roller sports ambassadors Derek Parra and Ippolito Sanfratello who are also Olympic champions in ice speed skating.

The video themes that were shown to the IOC Sports Program Commission played a very important role in the presentation, because they demonstrated how diverse, emotional and exciting roller sports can be for many people around the world - and those are important qualities for any Olympic sport. The Roller for Olympics compilation video includes highlights from all of the videos in one mini-documentary and makes a great marketing tool for selling roller sports to anyone including new participants and potential sponsors.
