Cascais is once again the stage for major sporting events, this time in a competition exclusively dedicated to Skate. The Liga Pro Skate, which competes simultaneously in two competitions – an International competition aimed at the professional side and the Liga Amateur in the ranking of the National Amateur Circuit, has its fourth stage in the Marina de Cascais, until September 19th.
This League, promoted by the Portuguese Skating Federation, kicks off the competitive skate season and marks the start of the new 2021-2024 preparation cycle, already structured for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
This stage also features a novelty: the participation of Masters, athletes over 30 years old, divided into two categories, Master and Master Elite. Athletes must be federated in the Portuguese Skating Federation. For those who are not yet federated and intend to participate in the competition, medical examinations will be carried out on the 16th between 14:00 and 18:00 and on the 17th between 10:00 and 19:00. These exams and registration for the exam are free.
Due to the restrictions currently in force, due to Covid-19, the event has the presence of the public, with a maximum capacity of 600 people in the venue, but it can still be followed through the streaming provided by the website tvfpp.pt, the official channel of the Portuguese Skating Federation, and on Sunday, from 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm, through SPORT TV 2 channel, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
