One of the fastest non-motorized sports in The World Games will be held at one of the most historic venues in downtown Birmingham.

The parking lot at the former Powell Steam Plant is being converted into a course to host the inline speed skating competition July 8-11.

Skaters can reach speeds between 30 and 35 miles per hour and will have a newly constructed track on which to test their mettle while competing for their country.
