Inline speed skating is a roller sport similar to ice speed skating in the Olympics. Speed skates are very different from the inlines you see on hockey players or recreational skaters - the wheels are much larger, the wheel base is much longer, and the boot is very short, looking much like a tight-fitting, hard-shelled shoe.
Some of the most recognizable names in ice speed skating today actually began their training on wheels as inline speed skaters. Athletes like Apolo Ohno, Chad Hedrick, Derek Parra, and J.R. Celski made the transition to ice speed skating in order to compete in the Olympics.
