IT WAS AN INDOOR TRACK SEASON TO REMEMBER

his indoor season has simply sizzled with athletes competing on Mondo tracks racking up an abundance of world leads and world bests, along with too many personal bests to even count.

  • 30 WORLD LEADS out of 42
  • 5 WORLD BESTS out of 5
  • 9 WORLD U20 RECORDS out of 10

Some special highlights on the most amazing moments of the indoor tracks season.
Genzebe Dibaba ran the fastest ever recorded time indoor for the 2000m which according to the IAAF, “… although the 2000m isn't an official world record event indoors, Dibaba’s performance … can be classed as an outright world record as it is faster than Sonia O’Sullivan’s outdoor mark of 5:25.36”.
The new High School star Armand “Mondo” Duplantis, with his 3 World U20 Records, has driven up the bar of the pole vault of over 12 cm in less than one month.

And while the European Indoor Championship has gone unnoticed, the 2 incredible European Records out of 2 were set on the MONDO Portable Banked Modultrack in Birmingham. Laura Muir, on her debut to remember over 1000m with 2:30.94, moved to second on the world Indoor all-time with 2:30.94. Mo Farah, in his latest Indoor Race over 5000m, broke the European record with an incredible 13:09.16.

Mondo would like to congratulate all athletes on a simply unforgettable indoor track season!

DIBABA CHOSE MONDO FOR HER NEW WORLD RECORD
ON THE PERMANENT MODULTRACK OF SABADELL (SPA) | 2000m

World 1500m champion Genzebe Dibaba added to her growing list of record-breaking achievements by breaking the world 2000m record at the Miting Internacional de Catalunya in the Spanish city of Sabadell.

The athlete had already predicted her intentions on Monday, February 6th, the day before the race, and so it happened: Dibaba went on to stop the clock at 5:23.75. Although the 2000m isn't an official world record event indoors, Dibaba’s performance can be classed as an outright world record as it is faster than Sonia O’Sullivan’s outdoor mark of 5:25.36.

The track on which the new world record has been set is a Mondo Permanent Modultrack, a perfect example of Mondo’s commitment to research and design in sport. Mondo’s indoor banked tracks can be customized to suit the customer’s building limitations. The result is a configuration that always guarantees the athletes’ smooth passage from the straightaways to the bends, and that effectively counterbalances the centrifugal force on the athletes moving along the bends in any lane and event. This helps athletes achieve their top performances in complete safety and in a fair competitive environment.

In a few days Dibaba will attend the Copernicus Cup in Torun (Poland)being ran on another Permanent Modultrack made by Mondo.  She has already said that on that occasion she will try to break his previous record in 1500m.
We are confident that at this event she will perform at the top!

Mondotrack/WS at the World Race Walking Team Championships Rome 2016
The track of the upcoming Rio Olympics kicked off the race held in Rome on over the weekend

This past weekend  the World Race Walking Team Championships in Rome took place, a decisive event for many athletes, prior the start of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio which will begin in three months. At the start of each race, the walkers path in their first meters was not on asphalt, but on a stretch of track produced by Mondo: Mondotrack WS.

This prefabricated track, which in the coming months will be used for athletics events of world importance, is the evolution of Mondotrack, inaugurated at the 2008 Olympics and on which many records were set.

Technically, Mondotrack WS has a surface layer which provides excellent elasticity and a constant dynamic uniform response distributed over the entire surface. The new embossing ensures a large contact area and better water flow; therefore, a greater resistance to slipping and better traction. One of the strengths of the new Mondo track is undoubtedly the grip, which allows the shoes spikes to have an excellent grip and ensure a perfect thrust, without having to penetrate the surface. The spike, compressing the track, they deflect the surface and increase the stored energy: when the foot is released, the track acts as a chord of an arc, projecting the athlete away from the surface and significantly increasing the length of the stride.

Mondo tracks allow greater performance in terms of physical mechanics, ensuring the durability of the systems, and in terms biomechanical and functional, to help athletes improve their performance and to train better and longer.

Mondo is not only for professional and major international events, but also for amateurs, to practitioners of running and non-competitive races; for this reason the company offers in its product range MondoRun, a track developed to ensure stability and comfort for the competitive and amateur training, to allow athletes to train in complete safety.

Mondo: let's you train longer

Glasgow has been awarded the 2019 European Indoor Athletics Championships
On Saturday, April 23rd the Scottish city was chosen by the European Athletics at its Council meeting in Amsterdam

The Scottish city was chosen by European Athletics at its Council meeting in Amsterdam ahead of Apeldoorn in The Netherlands, Minsk in Belarus and Torun in Poland.
The event will be held at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena, which earlier this year hosted the prestigious Indoor Grand Prix, the world’s leading indoor athletics event, and the British Athletics International Match from 2013 to 2015.
The Emirates Arena boasts a state-of-the-art variable banking hydraulic track installed in 2012 by Mondo.
This unique system, first installed in 1987 at the National Institute for Fitness and Sport in Indianapolis, Indiana, and in the most prestigious multi-venue training and competition facilities ever since, has evolved substantially over the years.
Nowadays the system is fully controlled by a PLC (Programmable Logic Control) system, which allows for simplicity of operation and guarantees optimum progression of the curve at every incline level.
When required for competition or training, the track bends can be conveniently raised to the required height in a matter of minutes, at the push of a button.
The track can be set at any intermediate position between flat and fully raised, so it can be used for a wide range of training activities and by athletes with different abilities, from younger or slower to world-record holders.
 
More than 600 athletes from the 50 European Athletics Member Federation countries will participate in the three-day event in Glasgow, making it one of the biggest sporting events ever to be held in this city.

Sportflex M is a prefabricated surface synthetic rubber, composed of two layers, each with specific characteristics, vulcanized together to give life to a single product, without joints. Contrary to on site systems, the process used creates a molecular bond that avoids the risk of a subsequent separation between the two layers. The upper rubber-based layer is engineered with a coefficient of friction suitable for sports that require a high level of rotational movements.

The surface is not reflective improves the bounce of the ball and ensures an efficient rainwater runoff. The special formulation enhances the product's ability to withstand high traffic and frequent stress of multi-purpose environments. It is also suitable for light traffic with spikes. The substrate is constituted by a geometric construction, deformable in two dimensions, that provides cushioning and energy return. Example of Mondo's sustainability, Sportflex M includes up to 43% post-consumer and post-industrial recycled materials, and 6% of rapidly renewable materials.

In the 47 races scheduled they was one world record set, 12 continental records and 91 national records. The most world seasonal bests were achieved with a total of 17.  The numbers demonstrate the success, also further substantiated by the magnitude of some characters.

The firm's review? The world record of American Ashton Eaton in the decathlon. The athlete beat his own world record by scoring 9,045 points over the 10-discipline event.   His phenomenal time in the 400: 45"00, something never seen before in a competition of the decathlon.

In middle-distance the British star Mo Farah continued to shine, once again winning the 5,000 and 10,000m. Exceptional performance also by the Kenyan Asbel Kiprop, the third gold in a row in 1500, more important because it has allowed Kenya to win for the first time in the history of World Championship gold medals. The country of the highlands did not shine only in the middle distance, but took gold in the 400 hurdles by with Nicholas Bett and in the javelin with Julius Yego.

In the World Championships the Italians were severly rejected  (zero medals) and the United States third in the medals table (6 golds, 6 silvers and 6 bronzes) continued the great duels in competitions, much of which was resolved in last race.  To report American Christian Taylor 18:21 in the triple jump, was only 8 centimeters from the leader Jonathan Edwards.

The most spectacular  final was that of men's 400m, with three men under 44 seconds: results like this never seen before.  The Mondotrack took off at the foot of the South African Wayde Van Niekerk, the first in 43.48 (fourth ever in the world), but has also pushed by American LaShawn Merritt (silver in 43.65) and the Grenadian Kirani James, bronze with 43.78.

In the women a star arose: Dutch Dafne Schippers won the 200m with the new European record in 21.63 (third woman ever) and silver in the 100m behind the Jamaican Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce. Next year in Rio -  on a new generation of fast Mondotrack - there will be a great duel between Schippers and Felix, which Beijing has raced only 400m, dominating them in 49.26.

The Nest closes its doors, but the echo of world champions will remain longer. At least until August 2017, when the next edition of the World Championships will be staged in London.

The pope called on sports in the streets to get involved in life as in sport: "Put you in the game in pursuit of the good in the Church and in society, without fear, with courage and enthusiasm." The pontiff also stressed the importance of sports clubs: "In the clubs you learn to accept. It welcomes any athlete who would like to join us and we welcome each other, with simplicity and sympathy. " Duro was the intervention against individualism: "Belonging to a sports club - said Bergoglio - means reject all forms of selfishness and isolation, is an opportunity to meet and be with others, to help each other, to compete in mutual esteem and grow in brotherhood. " Papa Francesco then wanted to remember the life and work of pioneering father Lorenzo Massa, founder in 1908 of a club that would become the St. Lawrence, the soccer team in Buenos Aires in which the pope is a fan. The pontiff said the bond that exists between many parishes and many sports clubs: "Many of your clubs are born and live in the shadow of a steeple; it's nice when there is a sporting group in the parish, but must be set right in a manner consistent with the Christian community, if not, it is best that there is. "

The event was also attended by the Mondo, providing and posing in collaboration with its partners Bi Sport, the "runner" that was placed directly in the churchyard of St. Peter's Basilica and was covered by the Pope accompanied by a delegation of children. The course was in Mondotrack, the same surface used for the athletics track of the Olympic Stadium in London 2012.


In addition, at the Village of Sports in way of conciliation, as was done October 20, 2013, during the "Running of 100 meters and Faith," Mondo and Bi Sport organized space Kids World, dedicated to preteens. Mondo has also provided professional event balloons, designed by the Mondo Toys division; one of them has been used by athletes present during the events of the day; while the others were delivered in a symbolic way to the Pope for an initiative to support the needy dioceses around the world.

When the curved sections are lowered, the synthetic surface of the track is flush with the surrounding surfaces, so those surfaces can be used for other sports or activities. Mondo makes the world’s only hydraulic banked 200-meter indoor competition track system. The Mondo hydraulic track at the CrossPlex is one of only six in the United States and 13 in the world.

As mentioned, Mondotrack was the competition track on which they ran the 2012 London Olympics, where three world records, four Olympic records, 64 national records, and a multitude of personal and season bests were set on the track.

En nombre de Jamaica
El Campeonato Mundial de Atletismo de Moscú ha llegado a su fin.

Después de nueve días de intensas competiciones el Campeonato Mundial de Atletismo, celebrado en el Estadio Luzhniki de Moscú, ha finalizado. Ha sido un campeonato que ha confirmado a los atletas jamaicanos como los mejores velocistas del mundo, gracias a las tres medallas de oro conseguidas por Usain Bolt y Shelly- Ann Fraser- Pryce y al excelente rendimiento de los demás miembros del equipo Caribeño. Con las tres de Moscú, Bolt lleva conseguidas ocho medallas de oro y es el primer atleta del mundo en haber ganado en los 100 m y 200 m en dos ediciones del Campeonato Mundial. Bolt se impuso con facilidad en la final de los 100 m, que se corrieron bajo la lluvia, registrando su mejor marca de la temporada con 9,77. En la final de los 200 m hizo una marca de 19,66, dando la impresión de haber bajado ligeramente el ritmo en los últimos metros. La tercera medalla de oro llegó en los 4x100 m relevos, la cual se obtuvo con un tiempo de 37:36, mejor registro de la temporada, cruzando la meta por delante de EE.UU. Sólo Shelly- Ann Fraser- Pryce pudo igualar el éxito de su compatriota: la atleta jamaicana se impuso en la final de los 100 m con un tiempo de 10,71 y ganó en los 200 m con un registro de 22,17. Su tercer oro lo consiguió con el equipo de relevos 4x100 m, que se alzó con la medalla de oro con un tiempo increíble: 41,29. Para entender el dominio de Jamaica en las disciplinas de velocidad, hay que tener en cuanta que cuatro de los cinco primeros atletas de la final de los 100 m masculino y tres de los cuatro primeros en la de 200 m proceden de la isla Caribeña. En otras pruebas de velocidad, se cumplieron las predicciones para la estadounidense LaShawan Merrit en los 400 m (43,74, mejor tiempo de la temporada) y la checa Zucana Hejnova en los 400 m vallas (52,83, mejor marca de la temporada), en los 110 vallas, el triunfo fue para el estadounidense David Oliver, quien logro un registro de13", el mejor tiempo del año para la especialidad, mientras que en los 400 m femenino, la Británica Christine Ohuruogu se impuso con un tiempo de 49,41 (nuevo récord nacional), por tan solo 4 milésimas de la favorita Amantle Montsho. Bastante sorprendente fue el oro conseguido por Jehue Gorno en la prueba de los 400 m vallas, el atleta de Trinidad y Tobago hizo un tiempo de 47:6, estableciendo el récord nacional y la mejor marca de la temporada. Dos finales espectaculares en los 4x400 m relevo: en la masculina, los EE.UU. ganaron con la mejor marca del año (2:58:71), mientras que en la femenina el equipo Ruso pudo superar a EE.UU. sólo en la final, cerrando el mejor tiempo de la temporada con 3:20:19. En las especialidades de fondo y media distancia, la gran estrella fue Mo Farah, quien no estuvo a la altura de las expectativas. La atleta británica consiguió el oro tanto en los 10.000 m, con una marca de 27:21:71 (su mejor tiempo de la temporada), como en los 5.000 m con un tiempo de 13:26:98. Entre otros éxitos de Moscú 2013, caben reseñar: el de la excepcional atleta local Yelena Isinbayeva, quién gano su tercer título del mundo de salto con pértiga con el listón a 4,89 m, la vuelta al éxito del francés Teddy Tamgho en el triple salto, con 18,04 m, la gran prueba del ucraniano Bohdan Bondarenko, quien se proclamó campeón de la disciplina de salto de altura, estableciendo el récord del campeonato (2,41 m). También merece una cita la atleta Caterine Ibarguen, al ganar en el triple salto la primera medalla de oro del Campeonato Mundial de Atletismo para Colombia. Como colofón de Moscú 2013, puede decirse que la nueva Mondotrack, más suave y rápida, no defraudó las expectativas de la víspera. Mondo ha suministrado también todo el equipamiento, tanto para competición como para entrenamiento, incluyendo las vallas, las jaulas para las disciplinas de lanzamiento de peso y el equipo necesario para el salto de altura y salto con pértiga.

El concejal de deportes, Franceso Martini, se siente especialmente satisfecho por haber traído a Tolmezzo dos eventos de una gran nivel e interés.

Mondo volvió a ser de nuevo protagonista con Mondotrack, la pista oficial de Londres 2012, un material innovador que el año pasado provocó numerosos calificativos de admiración por parte de los atletas y entrenadores por su rendimiento y, al mismo tiempo, por su considerable comodidad y que este año en Londres ha refrendado nuevos y numerosos récords mundiales.

Helsinki 2012
Campeonato Europeo de Atletismo: Balance de clausura

La edición 21 del Campeonato Europeo de Atletismo tuvo lugar en el Olympiastadion de Helsinki entre el 27 de Junio y el 1 de Julio. Los cincuenta países participantes marcaron un cambio en el evento: desde esta edición en adelante, el Campeonato Europeo de Atletismo se celebrará cada dos años en lugar de cada cuatro. Este cambio resultó de la edición finlandesa, coincidiendo con el año de las Olimpiadas, y su proximidad con el comienzo de los Juegos ha resultado en la eliminación de la marcha atlética y la maratón del programa del Campeonato. Muchos de los favoritos se han mostrado en excelente forma física para Londres 2012, haciéndose con el oro en otras disciplinas, entre los cuales están: Christophe Lemaitre para Francia en la prueba de 100 m; Mo Farah para Inglaterra en la prueba de los 5000 m; David Storl y Robert Harting para Alemania en el lanzamiento de peso y de disco respectivamente; Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad y Ranaud Lavillenie para Francia en los 3000 m de carrera de obstáculos y en salto de pértiga respectivamente; Mariya Ryemyen y Olha Sladukha para Ukrania en las pruebas de 200 m y Triple Salto; Anita Wlodarczyk para Polonia en lanzamiento de martillo. El primer lugar quedó para Alemania con 16 medallas (6 oros), luego Russia (5 oros) y Francia (5 oros). Éste fue el tercer Campeonato Europeo organizado por la capital finlandesa en su Estadio Olímpico después de las ediciones de 1971 y 1994; y por primera vez con pavimento Mondotrack que fue instalado en el estadio en el año 2010.

Another record on a Mondo track
New junior record in the triple jump: 13.32

Milan Civic Arena: Saturday, June 23rd a new Mondo track record in the triple jump.

After improving several times the Italian record in the triple jump indoor season, Ottavia Cestonaro obtained excellent results in outdoors and enters the history of the specialty: the magical platform of the Milan Arena (who can forget the duel between Fabrizio Donato and Paul Camossi the Night of 2000) with a triple jump of 13:32 (+1.4) in the second round of a competition she dominated from the beginning.

From the French Riviera this is the second World Best Time U.18 of the year (after the spanish Ana Peleteiro 13:50) and in any case of a result to the thresholds of the top-10 season also at the junior level.

In a painful day for speed, with so much headwind, the Mondo Sportflex SX Performance track has contributed to other good results, especially for jumpers: in addition to the Cestonaro’s record, the Latvian women in the high jump, Dindune Undine, (5th at the 2011 World Students of Lille, wearing the colors of the Enterprise) rose to 1.79. Erika Omoregie Furlani and Eleanor were both awarded with the 1.77 figure.

También Sky tiene la pista de Londres
Milán, Mondotrack está en Sky

La pista de los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012 ha ido a parar a Sky.

En la nueva sede de Sky Italia, Rogoredo (Milan), ha sido instalada la misma pista que la de Londres 2012, Mondotrack.

Sky será la cadena de televisión en exclusiva para los Juegos Olímpicos y Paralímpicos, con 13 canales sólo para Londres. Sky le pidió a MONDO convertir la entrada de sus nuevas oficinas en una pista, por lo que la empresa Piamontina con la ayuda de Novatect hicieron el trabajo.

La pista, con sus dos calles, va desde la entrada principal hasta la recepción.

Desde hoy mismo hasta la finalización de los Juegos Paralímpicos, tanto empleados como colaboradores, periodistas, invitados y deportistas pasearán sobre nuestra pista Mondotrack.

Inauguración de Fontanassa en Savona
La pista de atletismo es de Mondo

El viernes, 4 de mayo, fue inaugurado en Savona el centro deportivo municipal de "Fontanassa". El acontecimiento fue animado al contar con la participación de los chicos del I.T.I.S. "Galileo Ferraris" de Savona que participan en deportes de competición: 100 metros, 1.000 metros, salto de longitud, salto de altura y carrera de relevos 4 x 100 metros.

El Concejal de Deportes, Luke Martino, dijo: "Durante los últimos años, la instalación ha sido sometida a varias reformas, habiéndose procedido a sustituir la jaula de lanzamiento, y las plataformas de salto de longitud y de lanzamiento de jabalina. Se aprovechó también para reforzar la seguridad del acantilado situado en el lado norte. Lo último que hicimos fue la mejora de la instalación eléctrica.

Dada la gran afluencia de usuarios, fue imprescindible acometer la renovación integral del área destinada a la pista de atletismo para poder así llevar a cavo la renovación del Centro Deportivo Fontanassa en su conjunto". Los cambios incluyen:

 

•    Un edificio utilizado para las oficinas centrales y servicios


•    Una pista de atletismo al aire libre con 6 calles de 1,22 metros de anchura cada una y 400 metros de longitud.


•    Una media luna para las competiciones de salto de altura, salto con pértiga y lanzamiento de jabalina.


•    Plataforma de lanzamiento


•    Plataforma para el salto de longitud y triple salto con pista de aceleración de 50 metros de longitud y foso de caída.


•    Un campo destinado al rugby

 

Se reconstruyó la sub-base y se instaló un nuevo sistema de riego debajo del campo dedicado al rugby.
Mondo ha colaborado en la construcción del centro deportivo suministrando la pista de atletismo, MONDOTRACK SX de 13 mm de espesor, un revestimiento para suelos deportivos prefabricado con una estructura especial de celdas cerradas y un grosor uniforme en todos los puntos, obtenido de caucho sintético y materiales minerales de relleno. La interacción entre los hexágonos convierte a la pista en más sensible y elástica, ayudando a los atletas a mejorar sus resultados.

Campeonatos SEC
El título de la American Southeastern Conference se dilucidará sobre Mondotrack.

El Southeastern Conference Championships 2012 tendrá lugar del 10 al 13 de mayo en la Universidad Estatal de Luisiana en Baton Rouge, Luisiana, en su Bernie Moore Track Stadium. La histórica instalación con 5.680 asientos - reconocida como uno de los mejores centros de atletismo de los Estados Unidos - ofrece una superficie Mondotrack, la pista oficial de los Juegos Olímpico de Londres 2012. Esta pista de vanguardia fue instalada en 2010 y sustituyó a una superficie de poliuretano de 10 años de antigüedad y a una sub-base de más de 30. Entre los requisitos más importantes para la sustitución de la pista se encontraban el que pudiera hacer frente a las tablas del agua subterránea del Baton Rouge y que pudiera soportar condiciones que representan un reto del subsuelo de la pista derivadas de la proximidad de la ubicación del estadio al río Mississippi.
 
Además, los funcionarios de la universidad consideraron que representaría una enorme ventaja para su élite y atletas de nivel olímpico entrenar en la misma superficie que sería utilizada en los próximos Juegos Olímpicos. “La superficie de la pista ofrece una enorme diferencia para el entrenamiento de los atletas de alta competición y para el desarrollo de ritmos para vallas, por lo que estaba convencido de que Mondotrack era el producto idóneo para nosotros", dijo Dennis Shaver, primer entrenador del equipo de atletismo de la LSU. "Cuando analizas los récord mundiales y olímpicos publicados por la NCAA, te das cuenta de que la mayoría fueron conseguidos sobre pistas Mondo. Creo que los rendimientos para batir un récord están directamente ligados a la investigación y desarrollo que Mondo incorpora en sus productos y en el entusiasmo que la empresa pone en fabricar pistas que reduzcan la fuerza absorbida por los cuerpos de los atletas".

Campeonato Grande de la East Conference y Campeonato MEAC
Dos Universidades Americanas más para celebrar reuniones de atletismo en pistas de Mondo.

Los atletas en dos reuniones más de atletismo al aire libre de universidades de la División I de la NCAA en los Estados Unidos obtendrán sus marcas este fin de semana sobre pistas fabricadas por Mondo.
El 2012 Big East Conference Championships se celebrará durante los días 4, 5 y 6 de mayo en el Estadio de Atletismo USF de la Universidad del Sur de Florida en la ciudad de Tampa, Florida. Una instalación única en su género, el estadio fue sometido a una reforma que costó 2,79 millones de US$ y que terminó a finales de 2008. Lo más destacado de la reforma fue la incorporación de una superficie Mondotrack similar a la utilizada para la pista oficial de los Juegos Olímpicos de Pekín 2008 y a la que será utilizada para la pista de los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012. La USF fue la cuarta universidad USA en instalar una pista Mondotrack.
 
Irwin Belk Track en el Estadio Aggie en el campus de la Universidad Estatal A&T de Carolina del Norte en Greensboro, Carolina del Norte, es la sede de los Campeonatos de Atletismo Outdoor 2012 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) que se celebrarán del 3 al 5 de mayo. La pista Super X Performance del Estadio Aggie de Mondo fue instalada en 2004 como parte de una reforma del estadio de 1,5 millones de USD. “Mondo es una de las mejores superficies del mundo”, manifestó Roy Thompson, director de los programas de atletismo en la A&T de Carolina del Norte. "Esta pista nos convirtió en una las primeras instalaciones de atletismo del país. El ofrecer a los atletas este tipo de superficie para entrenar y competir nos ha ayudado de verdad en nuestros esfuerzos de selección. No tengo palabras suficientes para elogiar la superficie. Mondo cuenta con un excelente producto".

Campeonatos Indoor de la Southern Conference
La conferencia americana de atletismo universitario celebrará los campeonatos sobre Mondotrack durante los próximos dos años.

El JDL Fast Track, centro de atletismo indoor de carácter privado en Winston-Salem, Carolina del Norte, ha sido seleccionado como sede de los campeonatos de atletismo indoor de la 2013 - 2014 Southern Conference. Las reuniones se celebrarán los días 23 y 24 de febrero de 2013 y los días 1 y 2 de marzo de 2.014. La Southern Conference es una conferencia de la División I de la NCAA.
 
Una de las principales instalaciones indoor en el Sudeste de los Estados Unidos, el JDL Fastrack fue inaugurado en Enero de 2012. Cuenta con una pista ovalada de 200 meteros con una superficie Mondotrack, la misma superficie que será utilizada en los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012. Los pavimentos deportivos de Mondo también se utilizan en las áreas no destinadas a competición del estadio. La pista de calentamiento es de la superficie Super X Performance de la empresa, y las superficies no de competición son bases elásticas de caucho de Mondo.
 
"Mondo contaba con sensacionales opciones para ofrecernos una superficie de competición de primera, minimizando áreas concretas y maximizando donde los usuarios pueden calzar sus zapatillas de clavos para desplazarse un sitio a otro, todo ello sin salirse de nuestro presupuesto", dijo Craig Longhurs, fundador de JDL Fast Track.

Desde que con motivo de la renovación del Drake Stadium en 2006 se instaló la pista Mondo en el contexto de una reforma integral por importe de 15 millones de US$, se han establecido numerosos récords en encuentros y eventos, incluyendo los 16 récords obtenidos en los Drake Relays 2011. Además, desde la renovación, la universidad ha sido seleccionada para albergar una serie de prestigiosos campeonatos de atletismo, incluyendo los Campeonatos de Atletismo Outdoor de la División I de la NCAA los años 2008, 2011 y 2012, y los Campeonatos de Atletismo Outdoor USA de los años 2010 y 2013.

"El Drake Stadium (con) la superficie Super X Performance de Mondo en la pista Jim Duncan ha llegado a ser como la sede para el logro de grandes marcas", dijo Carolyn Hill, Directora Adjunta para Información deportiva y retransmisiones de la Universidad de Drake.

Mondo Super X Performance surface of choice for American campuses
The world’s top track for more than 30 years, once again will serve as the surface for two NCAA Division I outdoor track & field invitational meets

Mondo’s Super X Performance track, the world’s top track for more than 30 years, once again will serve as the surface for two NCAA Division I outdoor track & field invitational meets. Both meets are April 20-21.

John McDonnell Field at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, is the site of the John McDonnell Invitational, named for the legendary Razorback coach who retired in 2008. Arkansas’ track and field facility is one of only four in the U.S., and the first one on a college campus, to receive the prestigious International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Class I certification. In a previous statement, Chris Bucknam, Arkansas track and field head coach, said, “Having Mondo as our track provides our university a chance to bid on meets at every level of competition, and our student-athletes love to train on it every day. It is an incredibly fast surface.”

The Vanderbilt Invitational will take place at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee on the Vanderbilt Track Complex. Clark Humphreys, the university’s women’s track and field assistant coach, said, “The Mondo Super X Performance surface is tremendously fast. Training on it is extremely beneficial, because if you want to run fast in competition, you have to train fast in practice. With Mondo, the athletes are able to do that.”

Unos ríen, otros lloran
Los Campeonatos de Daegu ganan un protagonista, pero pierden otro

Oscar Pistorius consiguió durante el 22° Meeting Internacional de Lignano Sabbiadoro la marca necesaria para competir en los próximos Campeonatos Mundiales de Atletismo de Daegu y en las Olimpiadas de 2012 de Londres. Con 45,07 el atleta sudafricano batió su propio récord personal en 400 m. Malas noticias, en cambio, llegan desde Francia, pues el campeón del mundo indoor y recordman mundial de triple salto, Teddy Tamgho, no podrá acudir al Mundial por la lesión que se produjo en los Campeonatos Europeos sub 23 de Ostrava.

¡Viva Pistorius!
En Lignano Sabbiadoro el atleta sudafricano obtiene el pasaporte para Londres

¡Lo ha conseguido! En el meeting “Deporte - Solidaridad” de Lignano, Oscar Pistorius ha superado el tan ansiado mínimo para acceder a los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres 2012. El resultado es formidable. El atleta hizo los 400 metros en 45,07, batiendo a los jamaicanos Lancedord Spence (46,23) y Mason (46,50). La marca exigida para ir a Londres era de 45,25, pero Pistorius la ha superado. Su mérito es indiscutible, aunque queremos pensar que un poco de ese mérito se debe también al público italiano y a la rapidísima pista de Lignano sobre la que corrió como un rayo.
