    SPORT: ROLLER-SKATING

    Background: On April 17, 5,000 roller-skaters of all ages gathered at the foot of the Eiffel Tower to take part in a 12 kilometre fun rally through the Bios de Boulogne, Paris's largest park. Athletes from the French team completed the course in twenty-five minutes, but the event was not a race adn the business school students who had organised it for the third successive year were aiming to create a party atmosphere. Free soft drinks were provided every four kilometres and bands were playing at the finishing line. Although the day was dull and overcast the event brought a little sunshine into the city.
