"The 2017 SportAccord edition will be a milestone for FIRS: the first ever convention we attended as an Olympic Federation." said Aracu FIRS President, on the-spur-of-the-moment.


Actually, the FIRS officially entered the ASOIF - Association of Summer Olympic International Federations - together with the other federations that will be part of the Olympic Programme in both Buenos Aires 2018 and Tokyo 2020 and this is, without any doubt, a remarkable achievement for the roller sports world.

As usual, SportAccord has been a huge opportunity to meet sport people and organizations: a great place where we can share our know-how and create new networks and relationships.

As Chairman of the SportAccord Urban Games Commission, President Aracu had a speech during the SportAccord General Assembly in which he emphasized the importance of bringing the sports to the people and how this event could help in such a challenge. He also highlighted how the Urban Games will surely be the perfect way to combine the beauty of both city landscape and sport event: the perfect match for a healthy tourism.
Next year the convention will take place in Bangkok.
