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.
