The two governing bodies of the world of competitive jump rope/rope skipping have come together to create the International Jump Rope Union. Delegates from both FISAC-IRSF and the World Jump Rope Federation have teamed up to represent the sport at the SportAccord World Sport & Business Summit in Bangkok this week.
SportAccord is the premier annual sports conference focused on driving positive change internationally and dedicated to connecting organizing committees, cities, press and media, businesses and other organizations involved in the development of sports worldwide.
This week, and IJRU’s participation in this conference, marks the beginning of a new era for jump rope/rope skipping. Competitors and spectators alike can look forward to a big, bright future where the athletes, and the sport’s growth, light the way.
