Dear friends of rollersports.org, as you know, together with the Figure Roller Skating World Championships on the 20th and 21st November the meeting of the FIRS Executive Board took place in Freiburg .

Dear friends, In 2005 I was elected President of the International Roller Sports Federation and an exciting time, full of constant motivations has begun for me. These four years have been challenging and full of work, in which my only goal was to let our beloved sport reach efficient organizational levels. That all of our disciplines are wonderful and engaging sport, we already know! But in those four years I have worked so hard, so that the rest of the sporting world could become aware of the value of roller sports, such as a sport with perfect athletic movements and catalyst for media enthusiasm.
