Is there any particular reason for that ?


I made a little research and apparently it entered the country through German inmigrants in early XX century. Then two guys from Buenos Aires travelled to San Juan and founded a hockey club there and the people from the province just took a liking to the sport and it grew from then to these days.

In-Line Freestyle Skating


Today at the Youth Olympic Sports Park Gymnasium took place the speed slalom competition. Iran and China won their first medals here at the Roller Games and managed to surprise athletes and coaches with their performances.


Before now, European countries (especially France and Italy) were considered the best national teams in the speed slalom scene, and lately also China and China Taipei emerged.

This year, all the podiums were dominated by Asian countries both in Junior and Senior categories.

Not only physical power and accuracy but also great mental strength is needed to accomplish great results in speed slalom and this new generation of speed slalom skaters behaved like super experienced skaters both in the time trials phase and during the finals.


The results:



1st Ahmadi Taraneh (Iran)
2nd Ting Yu En (China Taipei)

3rd Liu Chiao Hsi (China Taipei)



1st Yu Jun Yan (China)
2nd Chen Yu-Hsiang (China Taipei)
3rd Shojaei Barjouei Ali (Iran)



1st Chen Bei-Yi (China Taipei)
2nd Arabi Laya (Iran)
3rd Lo Pei-Yu (China Taipei)



1st Zhang Hao (China)
2nd Chen Yu Chi (China Taipei)

Men's Rink Hockey World Championships


Spain back on top of World Rink Hockey


The craziest final ever closes the Rink Hockey World Roller Games. Argentina got the bronze against Italy. France wins the Firs Cup and Israel triumphs in the Confederation Cup.


After 4 years from the last title won in Luanda in 2013, Spain won again the World Championship winning 5-4 after penalties an incredible game against Portugal, It's the 17th title for Spain.

Spain-Portugal has been one of the most balanced World Championship Final of the last years. And even one of the most intense; really an amazing game with a dramatic end.

During the first half, Spain prevailed and scored twice with two similar goals. The first after 6 minutes with a shot by Raul Marin and the second 2 minutes before halftime with a shot diverted by Jordi Adroher. Xavi Malian, the Spanish goalkeeper, saved all the shots and the opportunities created by Portugal.

The match changed at the beginning of the 2nd half. Portugal entered the rink very determined and draw in less than 5 minutes. A great shot by Helder Nunes halved the gap and a perfect power-play action led Gonçalo Alves to tie the match after a blue card to Jordi Adroher and the error of Helder Nunes on the direct free shot.

The referees showed a second blue card to Reinaldo Ventura, but Raul Marin failed the direct free shot and Spain didn't score during the 2-minutes power play.

Spain went ahead thanks to a goal scored by Edu Lamas who shoot twice towards Girao, scoring the 3-2 goal.

In the last 10 seconds many things happened. Girao, the Portugues goalkeeper was suspended with a blue card because he went on a player outside his penalty zone. Raul Marin failed the direct free shot and went to the corner to get the ball committing a foul on Diogo Rafael that the referees punished with a blue card. With 4 seconds still to play, Helder Nunes failed the direct free shot and the first rebound, but scored on the second in the last second of the game, leading the final to the extra time.

At the beginning of the extra time, Spain didn't score in power play. Portugal reached 9 fouls without committing the 10th and the last shot by Diogo Rafael hitched the post at the last second.

At the penalties, Portugal scored first with Joao Rodrigues, but in the last two penalties Spain came back and won: first Edu Lamas tied and Albert Casanovas scored the penalty that gave the title to Spain.

Before the Final, Argentina got the third place and bronze medal winning against Italy 4-2. This final too was very balanced: the result was 2-2 until the last two minutes, when Argentina completed the come back (Italy was ahead 2-1 at halftime) and won the game and the bronze medal.

The Firs Cup went to France that won the final against Germany 6-4.


Israel won the Confederation Cup.

5th/6th Place Match
