Inlines are definitely not inferior to quads. They both have their places.

Inlines are more similar to ice skates, so it would stand to reason that they'd be more accepted for speed skating.

That said, it has been tried several times to get inline speed skating as an olympic event, only to be shot down time and time again. Mainly because inline speed skating feeds both short and long track ice speed skating. So why would the olympic committee make an event that would possibly slow down the growth of ice?
