The first person to skate solo around the world, Fabrice Gropaiz of France, began his journey in San Francisco three years ago. Since then, he has skated more than 30,000  kilometres  through  thirty-three countries.

    He skated across the USA and northern Mexico from west to east, then across Europe, Russia, Mongolia, China and Australia before flying across the Pacific Ocean to San Francisco again.
In all the big cities, television and newspaper reporters interviewed him.

    He travelled with fifteen kilogrammes of equipment, which he pulled behind him on a homemade trailer. His equipment included a tent, a change of clothes and a video camera.

    A friend, David Lai, made a web site (www.worldskate.com),  and Fabrice sent regular news to the site. He wrote in English so that people all over the world could understand. Thousands of people sent emails to Fabrice during his journey. People saw him on television and read about him, and many readers and listeners offered to help him. Fabrice asked them to send money to a medical research organisation. In this way, he raised a lot of money for important medical research.

    Between stops, he travelled 100 kilometres on good days. But there were also bad days and problems: bad weather, broken skates, dangerous drivers, snakes on the roads in Mexico, and a wolf attack in Mongolia. However, none of these problems stopped him, and he wants to do another trip.
