5th WORLD FREESTYLE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Geisingen City, Germany

Freestyle Skating competitions:
FREESTYLE SLALOM: is a segment of skating where skaters combine multiple dances, like moves through lines of cones placed at various intervals. In order for this sport to be complete, skaters will skate to their choice of music to express their “dance”.
For competition purposes, participants have to complete their routine through 3 lines of cones with 0.5, 0.8 m and 1.2 m intervals.
BATTLE SLALOM: is a segment of freestyle slalom where skaters are in direct confrontation in groups of 3 or 4 competitors. Participants have to complete their runs through 4 lines of cones with 0.5, 0.8 m and 1.2 m intervals. The main emphasis in this competition is about strategy and technical comparison with other skaters of the group.
SPEED SLALOM: is about dashing and weaving through a line of cones placed at 0.8 m intervals. The whole objective is to complete the line of cones as fast as possible.
FREESTYLE SLIDES: is a relatively new segment of freestyle skating. Slides are essentially stopping moves but skaters have to combine different styles to achieve a “trick”.
Competition structure:
- Classic Slalom structure requires stricter adherence to rule where participants have to combine factors such as technique and style in order to score points. Participants are also required to perform within a specific time range.
- Battle Slalom, rules are more casual such that participants do not have to have a complex set of moves combination. The main emphasis in this competition is about technique.
-
5 categories of competition
- Classic Slalom: Men, Ladies, Junior
- Speed Slalom: Men, Ladies, Junior
