Dear Friends of rollersports, I am writing from Athens, birthplace of Olympics Games and seat of Sportaccord 2008. Since these first days Sportaccord has confirmed its importance as meeting and support place for the Sports World, giving us the chance to meet most important IOC and International Federations Representatives. This year and the next one will be fundamental for the continuation and the carrying out of FIRS Olympic Project which will have its crucial moment in Copenhagen in 2009 through the voting of the new Olympic Program.

Dear Friends of rollersports, on the last 19th of April around the Zug lake there has been the first step of the World In line Cup 2008. Amazing as usual, this step has been won by Joey Mantia (USA) for men and, for women, by the Colombian sprint specialist Cecilia Baena. Since this first competition, WIC confirmed once again its vocation as marathon and long distance circuits on roller skates which have a great impact on a world-wide level and, because of that, I think it is important to seize the opportunity of this first event in order to introduce to all of you the renewed synergy between FIRS and IGUANA for WIC organization and promotion.

Dear Friends of rollersports, The time has come for rollersports to change skin and achieve a brand new identity. I used the term “identity” and not “new image” because the planning and communication project activated by FIRS is a wider and more comprehensive strategy, created with a professional approach towards media and public.

Dear Friends, I am pleased to inform you that these news are coming to you from Guatemala City, directly from the seat of the 119th IOC Session, general assembly of the IOC Members convened to decide upon many important topics, such as modifications of the Olympic Chart, elect host Cities (like Sochi, freshly elected as seat of the 2014 Winter Olympics), and recognition or exclusion of  International Sports Federation.

Dear friends in sport, Back from Beijing, host city of SPORTACCORD 2007, it is now time to draw a few important guidelines for the next months. First of all, after all the meetings and personal discussions with IOC Members and top world sports managers, I am reasonably more confident about the growing attention arising towards rollersports.
