Rollerblade® Speed Team at the Paris Marathon 2019
from Rollerblade on 21 Oct 2019
The date is September 22, 2019. We are skating on the Champ de Mars, just behind the Eiffel Tower, before the big race. Mars translates to March in English ; in Paris the month of March is often filled with rainy days. Mars was the god of war in ancient Rome. And like this Roman god, the athletes in the 3rd Paris Roller Marathon will have to battle it out for the finish. A rainy day battle in the form of a skate race around the Eiffel Tower.
After 1 hour and 10 minutes of hard fight, Doucelin takes the gold under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. On the Champ de Mars after a long fight in the rain, the Rollerblade® Speed Team athlete wins the battle.
