Add Womens Roller Derby to the upcoming Olympics

    1. Petition by

      Area 705 Roller Derby

It is the world's fastest growing sport and it is an economic driver for cities that host games. If the IOC wants to have games that sell tickets, they should include Roller Derby as the new sport. It makes good economic sense.

    2. Roller Derby fighting with 8 other sports to be included

      Eight sports, including wakeboard and sport climbing, will battle it out for a spot in the 2020 Olympics, the International Olympic Committee said on Monday.

      Baseball and softball, the two sports removed after the 2008 Games, as well as wakeboard, squash, sport climbing, rollersports (flat track roller derby), karate and the martial art of wushu, will be evaluated and possibly reduced further in early 2013, IOC President Jacques Rogge told reporters.

    3. International Olympic Committee to consider Roller Derby

      Feb. 13th, 2013-The Toronto Star covers a story outlining the possible selection of games that could be included in the Olympics. Roller games are included in the list and Roller Derby is specifically mentioned. By creating this petition I hope to illustrate the support that this game has internationally.
