How Many Olympic SpeedSkaters Started On Inlines or Roller Skates?

Did you know, Efforts, so far, to make inline skating an Olympic sport have failed, forcing inline skaters to switch to ice skating to fulfill their Olympic dreams. KC Boutiette made three Olympic teams, and Derek Parra won the gold medal in the 1,500 and the silver in the 5,000 at the 2002 Games. Seven inline skaters are on the 18 member US long track team alone.
