Extractions: N o one is really sure when the first roller skates were used. It is likely that the first roller skates were an adaptation of ice skates and were used for transportation rather than sport. The first recognized inventor of roller skates was a Belgian manufacturer named Joseph Merlin. He produced the first roller skates with metal wheels in 1760. He presented his invention in London at a formal ball and rolled across the floor playing an expensive violin. The story is told that because his skates were unable to be turned or stopped, he glided gracefully into a huge mirror and suffered serious injuries. The first time roller skates were "successfully" seen in public was in 1849, when Frenchman Louis Legrange used roller skates to simulate ice skating in the play Le Prophete. He created his skates by mounting tiny rollers down the center of ice skates. In the mid 1800s, a number of other inventors took up the call and many different types of skates were produced. All, however, suffered the same problems Merlin's skates had: the inability to be effectively controlled or stopped. New Yorker James Plimpton solved the problem of controlling skates in 1863. Plimpton's skates used a rubber cushion to anchor the axles. This cushion would compress when the body was leaned, enabling the wheels of the skate to turn slightly when the skater shifted his or her weight. Plimpton's design is considered the basis for the modern roller skate.

Extractions: ROLLER SPORTS HISTORY Evolution Competition Apparel Sport in Transition THE EARLY YEARS Roller skates were first invented in Europe in the 1760s. Joseph Merlin, a Belgian, invented a skate that "skittered" across the floor on small wooden wheels. The hobby didnt take off at all, and Merlin emigrated to England. In the 1800s, the Dutch used wooden wheels on their ice skates so they could continue skating in the summer. Roller skates appeared on the ballet stage in 1818 in Berlin, and were also seen on the streets of Paris. In England, this form of recreation was referred to as "rinking". The skates of those times, however, only went in a straight line they couldnt turn and they had no breaking mechanism, so once again the pastime faded away. Roller skating finally made its way to North America in the late 1830s, with European manufacturers still dominating skate designs for several years. EVOLUTION OF THE ROLLER SKATE Following is a summary of the major known developments and technological improvements of the roller skate, from its origins in Europe, to the inline skates which are so popular today.
