Things are warming up for the World Roller Games to turn Barcelona into the world’s roller skating capital between 4 and 14 July. Before the big roller sports stars enter into action, the junior athletes will break the ice in their respective championships from Saturday 29 June, thus putting to the test the venues that have been prepared to host the biggest sports event held in Barcelona since 1992.

Artistic, Inline Hockey, Rink Hockey, Inline Freestyle, Scooter and Speed are the six disciplines with competitions in both the senior and junior categories in the WRG 2019.
