House Cleaning: 1991 Slalom World Record

Slalom on BBC Record breakers

Yes. You have probably seen this video of Martin Sweeney one before, but in my eyes it doesn’t really exist unless it shows up on Skate and Annoy. This video segment is from the BBC show Record Breakers. The video was shot in 1991, and the host is Roy Castle who died in 1994. The source of the video comes from UKSSA, the United Kingdon Slalom Skateboard Association. The UKSSA site has a history of the UK slalom scene, a how-to, and other information pertinent to UK slalomers including a higher quality video than what you can see after the jump. It must have been fun to skate on that road racing course. Nice Shoes Martin!

Martin Sweeney’s 1991 World record Slalom

I’m not sure if it’s “Sweeney” or “Sweeny” since the video says one thing and the web site says another. Of course it doesn’t help that the web site spells United Kingdom wrong on every page.

YouTube has pulled this video every so often, but it seems to reappear. Of course you can always download a high quality version from UKSSA.
