Macau a strange case, and Asia the asleep Continent

Since the beginning of Roller Hockey activity that Asia is one of the worst continents concerning it.
There are a lot of reasons for this situation:
  • CARS (Confederation Asia of Roller Sports), presided by Mr. Sheng Zhiguo, doesn't promote and develop roller hockey.
  • CIRH doesn't promote the rising of an Asian Roller Hockey Confederation like happens in Africa and Europe, which would have a main role in our sport.
  • Inline hockey is getting day by day much important, taking Roller Hockey to a second plan
  • Few countries play Roller Hockey, for example in last Asia Cup, only Macau, India, Taiwan and Japan were present (China, North Korea, South Korea, Pakistan, Hong Kong had been played roller hockey years ago).
  • Asian Cup is the unique international competition in Asia-there's any competition between clubs.
 For example it's not decided yet the location of 2012 Asia Roller Sports Cup. "Hoje Macau" talks about China, but there's any confirmation, just some months before the competition, reveling all disorganization of CARS.


Casa de Portugal A in 2005 with 13 players (Where are them?)
Taking a brief look on Roller Hockey history, it's possible to observe that Macau has dominate the sport until today:
  • Asian Champion for 8th times
  • Unique Asian country to dispute FIRS World Cup
  • Unique Asian country to play Nations Cup in Montreux
Unhappily the situation seems to change forever, due to many facts. The president of Associação de Patinagem de Macau (Roller Sports Macau Association), António Aguiar, and their players accuse Macau Government to not build a new Roller Hockey rink, where could be possible to practice our sport. The unexistance of rink to play stopped the Macau Championship and the school bases program in Casa de Portugal (2005 and 2006 was the last time reported) wasn't reported any more.
Casa de Portugal A in 2006 with 11 players
The National Championship, was played usually for three teams connected to Portugal:
According to "Hoje Macau" Dom Bosco, the same rink that doensn't have conditions to practice roller hockey, received in last days of October the Inline Hockey Championship!!!!
Worst than that are the teams playing it... the same that played roller hockey until some years ago. All this situation is quite curious and revels that some people is lying. Seems that soon Roller Hockey will be substituted by Inline Hockey, forgetting all cultural connexion between Portugal and Macau, where inline hockey is not included.
Like happens in a lot of things in Macau, the Region doesn't resist to China invasion, and forget all it ancients.

Macau team in FIRS B World Cup 2011 in Dornbirn, Austria
Some months ago other newspaper from Macau, "Ponto Final" reported the opinion of Antonio Aguiar (APM president) concerning the actual presidence of CIRH, by Mr. Harro Strucksberg. He said that there were some movements to take off Mr. Harro, and he was a possible name to manage CIRH.





Rolling Together just has the doubt... How a man that is not able to manage roller hockey in his own region wants and thinks will be able to coordinate roller hockey all over the world???

  1. Ricardo, had you ever tought that maybe Harro never did anything for german roller hockey development?

    Did you ever thinked if Mr Harro forgot Asian Roller Hockey, only because Mr Aguiar was never at Harro's side?

    Do you think that it is fair to talk about Mr Aguiar lack of power, after about 30 years of Macau's roller hockey development? Harro was not abble to put roller hockey in the World Games, when it was played in his own city, Duisburg... so...??

  2. Tal como o Sr Aguiar o Sr HArro foi presidente da Federação Alemã antes de estar no CIRH. Pode não ter feito grande trabalho mas se vires neste momento o estado do hóquei alemão estou quase certo que está bem melhor que há uns anos atrás...
    Em relação a ele poder-se ter esquecido do hóquei asiático por causa do Sr. Aguiar são tudo suposições mas está provado que não se pode estar à espera do CIRH para nada...

    Não te esqueças daquele email que te enviei em relação aos jogos mundiais onde o sr. Harro falava do seu enorme esforço para colocar o hóquei nos mesmos jogos. Tenho respeito por todos os 30 anos de trabalho, mas daí a admirar a sua candidatura ao CIRH só se for mesmo para pela primeira vez termos alguém da ásia a dirigir este orgão o que poderia ajudar ao desenvolvimento do hóquei por lá...

  3. LA FIRS ni la CIRH promocionan el hockey patines a nivel mundial pero tampoco lo hacen la Confederación sudamericana CSHP ni la Confederación Panamericana en nuestro continente. Venezuela, Cuba, México, Costa Rica, Panamá, Ecuador algún día tuvieron un buen nivel de hockey Patín y que ha pasado? No han tenido el apoyo internacional. A propósito, lo hace la CERH en Europa? Que pasa con paises europeos que practicaban el deporte del hockey sobre patines. Todo indica que se requiere un gran cambio a todo nivel!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Trekking in Nepal…Family Adventure style
    The towering Himalayas are, to many travellers’ minds, the chief reason for visiting Nepal. The country tumbles steeply down from the 800km stretch of the Himalayan battlements that forms its northern border, and can claim no fewer than eight of the world’s ten highest peaks – including, of course, Everest, the highest of them all. The mountains are more than just physically astonishing, however. The cultures of highland-dwelling Nepalese peoples are rich and fascinating, and the relaxed, companionable spirit of trekking life is an attraction in itself. The Himalayas have long exerted a powerful spiritual pull, too. In Hindu mythology, the mountains are where gods go to contemplate, while the Sherpas and other mountain peoples hold certain peaks to be the very embodiment of deities.
    Most visitors to mountain areas stick to a few well-established trekking routes. They have good reasons for doing so: the classic trails of the Everest region with its famous trails like Everest Base camp trek and the 3 high passes are both mind blowing ventures and highly popular in the world. And Annapurna regions are so popular because they offer close-up views of the very highest peaks; this includes Annapurna 1 & 2, fishtail peak and Ganesh Himal trek. Famous treks like the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, Annapurna Base camp trek & the Annapurna Circuit trek are some of the most famous on earth. Dramatic scenery and fascinating local cultures are most known in this area. Lodges on the main trails – some as sophisticated as ski chalets, these days – make it possible to go without carrying a lot of gear or learning Nepali, and without spending too much money, either. While trekking, you’ll likely eat and sleep for $20–30 a day. For those who put a high priority on getting away from it all, there are plenty of less-developed routes, of course, and simply going out of season or taking a side-route off the main trail makes a huge difference.
    The Helambu and Langtang regions are less striking but conveniently close to Kathmandu, attracting a little fewer than ten percent of trekkers. The Langtang valley trek & the Ganja-La pass are known trails in this area. This leaves vast areas of eastern and far western Nepal relatively untrodden by visitors. To hike in these areas you’ll need either to get set for camping and carry your own supplies, and live like a local, or pay to join an organized trek with tents and accept the compromises that go along with that.
    With a good operator, you can anywhere in the wild. A Great Himalayan Trail now runs the length of highland Nepal – though it will be for some time, if ever, before such a route will be serviced by lodges.
    Treks in remote far eastern and far western Nepal are mostly restricted to two kinds of globe trotters, both adventurous in their own way. The majority come on organized camping treks with agencies – in fact, this is obligatory for those areas that require a permit. The minority are independent trekkers prepared either to carry tents and food or negotiate with porters, or to seek food and lodging in local homes and basic lodges. Some great camping outdoors include the Manaslu circuit Trek, Upper Mustang trek the Dhaulagiri circuit, Rara lake trek and the great Kangchenjunga trek, both north and south.
