Sport review

 

In this discipline, athletes compete in three individual events: 200 meter clock race, 500 meter speed race and 10,000 meter points race. In the race against the clock, each skater's time is timed individually, and the one that makes the shortest time wins. At 500 meters, the two athletes who arrive first in each qualifying round go to the next round until they reach the final round. The point race begins with a collective start: skaters compete for points and the one who accumulates the most points is the winner. The headquarters in Lima 2019 will be the Green Coast of San Miguel. The United States leads the medal table with 67 gold medals.

History

This is a sport that became more popular in the twentieth century. The first world roller skating championship was in Monza, Italy, in 1937. On that occasion only men with traditional skates participated. The discipline appeared as an exhibition sport in the 1979 Pan American Games, finally being included in all the Games since 1987. In 1992, traditional skates were changed to inline wheels.
