Icahn Stadium wins Outdoor Track Facility of the Year
The New York stadium features Mondo Super X Performance.
ASBA has awarded Icahn Stadium with the title of Outdoor Track Facility of the Year. Icahn Stadium at Randall’s Island in New York is home to a blue, eight-lane, 400-meter Mondo Super X Performance track. The Stadium was the first athletic facility in the United States to receive the prestigious Class 1 certification by the International Association of Athletics Federations, so it meets the precise quality and performance requirements laid down by the IAAF, including those for synthetic track surfaces. Only four venues in the U.S. and 103 internationally are IAAF Class 1 certified. The world’s top track for more than 30 years, the renowned Super X Performance track is recognized around the world as one of the fastest, most durable and environmentally safest tracks available. It is installed at more than 1,100 venues globally and was the track of eight Olympic Games through 2004.
