Albert Bishop Park on Hedley Ave will welcome the competitors of the National Inline Speed Skating Championships for exciting road events and marathons to pick the fastest skaters who will represent the country at the World Championships.
On the 4th and 5th of July 2022, Albert Bishop Park will be filled with action as racing representatives from Queensland and other Australian states and territories try to earn a spot at the championships. The marathons, on the other hand, will take place on the 8th of July.
Indoor track events will be taking place on Thursday 7th of July at the Logan Metro Sports and Events Centre at Crestmead.
These skaters are raring to show their best as the competitions in any national or international events since January 2020 have been on pause.
The 27-member Queensland team has skaters ranging in age from 6 to 68 with 10 skaters competing at a national level for the first time this year. At speeds of up to 40km per hour, our sprinters are as fast as Usain Bolt!
Those who make the grade will be chosen to represent Australia at the Oceania Championships in September in New Zealand, or the World Skate Games in Argentina in October.
Spectators, especially skating enthusiasts, are welcome and there is no cost for entry at the venues.
