Speed Worlds in China Cancelled
Delayed until November 2003

Four skating federations, in different parts of the world, have submitted formal bids to replace China as the host of the 2003 World Inline Speed Skating Championships.

On May 29, 2003 the Central Committee of the International Roller Sports Federation (FIRS) decided to cancel the 2003 World Inline Speed Skating Championships, originally scheduled to take place in August in Souzhou, China. The Committee made that decision because China has been hit very hard by the recent epidemic of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

The Central Committee also decided to delay the 2003 Speed Worlds until November, and select a new location for the event. During the next two weeks, the FIRS International Speed Committee (CIC) will review bids from four national federations who have offered to host the event:

  • Argentina
  • El Salvador

  • India
  • Venezuela

  • The International Speed Committee will meet with the Central Committee on June 13, and on that date a decision will be made about where the 2003 Speed Worlds will be held.
