In the 1960s the Federation changed its name to Federation Internationale de Roller Skating (FIRS) and was officially recognized by the IOC as the international governing body for all roller skating sports. In the 1970s, FIRS was recognized as a member of the General Association of International Sport Federations (GAISF).
The annual Congress held in Zell Am See, Austria, in 2000, authorized a second title change for the International Federation, substituting “Roller Skating” with “Roller Sports” while retaining the FIRS acronym.
World Skate works to unify the unique characteristics of its sports and to promote their global development.
