1996 - Momenti di Gloria

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.

(But cannot be watched in Belgium or Luxembourg apparently due to a copyright claim - sorry my Belgian friends - get yourself a VPN!).
