(ANSA) – ROME, MARCH 22 – FISR celebrates its centenary in the Coni Hall of Honor and does so in front of its best athletes and top Italian sporting officials. “We are called young centenarians because we are a young sport” opens the president of the Italian wheel sports federation Sabatino Aracu.
Many events in 2022 such as the ‘Italian Roller Game’ in Lombardy or the ‘World Skateboarding Tour’ in Rome. “There should also have been a stop in Russia, we had an agreement with Moscow’s Red Square, but we will have to give it up,” continued Aracu. Then the institutional greetings round starting with Valentina Vezzali. “We are here to celebrate the hundred years of the Fisr, a federation that has been able to renew itself with new disciplines, involving the youngest without undermining the past.
A federation that greatly promotes the social and the values of inclusion “, said the Undersecretary for Sport.
Giovanni Malagò, on the other hand, focuses on the importance of Aracu for the federation. “One hundred years are always important – said the number one of Coni – People make places and if the Fisr has become what it is thanks to Aracu, thanks to his stubbornness and self-denial”. The president and CEO of Sport and Health, Vito Cozzoli, closes: “Fisr has done a lot for Italian sport and will still do a lot. It is no coincidence that Sport e Salute wanted to take up the challenge of the World Skate Championships in Rome.
It was an incredible success despite the fact that we were in a very difficult pandemic period “. (ANSA).
