Venezuela Backs Out As Host Nation For 2010 World Roller Speed Skating Championships

The 2010 World Roller Speed Skating Championships won’t be held in Venezuela. The host nation cited a number of organizational problems in declining to host the Championships in October.

According to sources, a new host nation will be announced within the next few weeks. Possible hosts include Chile, Taipei, and Germany. The dates should remain the same, with the competition taking place in late October 2010.
