    An Italian promotional video of inline speed skating from grass roots to elite. Most of the footage is of the 1996 World Championships in Scaltenigo, Italy. Watch Chad Hedrick in slow motion to the the tune of "Just An Illusion" and tell me it doesn't give you goose bumps! (But cannot be watched in Belgium or Luxembourg apparently due to a copyright claim - sorry my Belgian friends).

    You Tube footage of the 2003 World Championships in Barquisimeto, Colombia. The event saw the emergence of Joey Mantia as a talented junior who would take the world by storm. It is also notable for Venezuela taking their first ever gold medal with Fabian Arcila in the senior mens 500 metres - and the ensuing 'bust up' with Wayne Begg in the immediate aftermath. Unfortunately the video carries with it a watermark, but it is still watchable.
