In the same direction are the many meetings that have characterized our efforts in London and that have been stretched, from an institutional perspective, to keep Roller Sports in the leading international sport events.

A certainly interesting meeting concerned the SportAccord World Artistic Games. The first event will take place at the end of 2012 and will involve about 800 athletes in five days of sports with musical entertainment, with the participation of seven sports: Figure Roller Skating, Artistic Cycling, Indoor Musical Aeronautics, Dancing, Gymnastics, Synchronised Swimming and Diving.

There will be World Games in Cali 2013 and Pan American Games in Toronto 2015 with Roller Sports participation in these two world-class sporting events.

Finally we have started a series of contacts for the promotion and the spread of Roller Sports, that will surely reach results in an intense work season.

We met representatives of cities and countries interested in hosting high-level events of Roller Sports, able to attract a large and varied audience. We have also made contact with distribution agencies, that have shown a great interest in the possibility of transmitting images of roller sports by their partner.

During the elective assembly of SportAccord Mr. Verbruggen was confirmed as President; gave compliments for the work done so far and we have assured our support for his future work.

I take this opportunity to send to you all a warm sport hug.
