Athletes set to participate in World Roller Games

Feb. 8, 2019

The World Roller Games are the new competition format of the International Federation of Roller Sports, otherwise known as World Skate. The second edition of this major sports event will be staged in Barcelona between 4 and 14 July this summer and some 4,000 athletes from more than 100 countries are set to compete there.

The competition brings together the World Championships of various rollers sports disciplines and, therefore, only the leading athletes of each will be able to take part in the competition, provided that they or the federation they represent have managed to qualify. Each discipline has its own qualification system and has a limited number of places.

Competitions are held at a national level (except in various specific discipline events) and it is up to the federations of each country to select and register the participants who will represent them in each of the 11 disciplines to be held in Barcelona: Alpine, Artistic, Downhill, Inline Freestyle, Inline Hockey, Rink Hockey, Roller Derby, Roller Freestyle, Scooter, Skateboarding and Speed.

Athletes participating in the World Roller Games must therefore be selected and registered by their respective national federations. So any athletes interested in participating in the WRG should contact their country’s federation to apply, as this body is responsible for registering the athletes selected to take part in Barcelona 2019.

If a national federation does not recognise any one of the disciplines of the World Roller Games, athletes must also obtain a generic sports license within this the same body. Their national federation will subsequently be responsible for registering them for the WRG in that specific discipline if they meet the necessary requirements.
