Yes People Do Still Figure Skate on Quad Roller Skates and They're Doing it Now on the Internet Free

Not much time to comment, but while looking up some results from the USARS speed skating, I noticed that the streaming links for that are still working. The current competition is figures and it appears to be compulsory routines. There's a chat box so you can learn a bit about what's going on. I don't know why but this gave me some encouragement at times today when I needed a short break. It's fun to see people enjoying the various ways of rolling on various kinds of skates. Looks like pairs is beginning as I wrap this. They're a couple of hours behind schedule, it seems!
