Hello Everyone,

I am interested in writing an undergraduate thesis on the biomechanics
of the (quad) roller skating spin, and I was wondering if anyone had
come across any literature related to this topic. I have found many
papers on ice skating, especially speed skating techniques and jump
techniques, but nothing yet on spinning on the floor. I have also found
a few papers on in-line skating, but they are either about injuries or
more speed skating techniques. Can anyone please help me find research
on quad roller skating or spinning on the floor?

Thank you,
Michelle Kwan

interested in roller skating.)
