Colombian athletes won both the men’s and women’s gold in the first ever rolling skating competition at the Youth Olympics Games Buenos Aires 2018.

Gabriela Rueda-Rueda won the women’s event with a clean sweep of victories in the three race disciplines of the sport. The 18-year-old’s nearest rival Honorine Barrault finished third in the final race and had to settle for silver. Giorgia Valanzano of Italy won bronze.

Colombian fans also celebrated gold in the men’s event. Jhony Angulo-Reina, who is also 18, finished runner-up in the final race, the 5,000m elimination. But it was enough for the Colombian athlete to claim the gold medal.

Roller speed skating takes its bow on the Olympic programme at Buenos Aires 2018 and fits in well with local youth culture.

The sport was part of the Nanjing sports lab, a concept that inspired Buenos Aires 2018 with mission of bringing sport, culture and education to young people.
