The World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade 22 will be held in the Serbian capital from 18-20 March. The indoor season is in full swing, and many of the world's best athletes have already produced some stunning performances on the World Athletics Indoor Tour, most of them on MONDO’s athletics track. Numerous Olympic champions also are set to compete in Belgrade; the competition level is expected to be extremely high.
MONDO will provide Belgrade's Stark Arena with a new, personalized line of sports athletics equipment that features a modern, dynamic design consistent with the event’s overall look.
The new athletics equipment range, designed by MONDO in cooperation with World Athletics, was shown for the first time last year during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, an edition in which many records were broken on MONDO athletics track.
During that event, the MONDO athletics equipment also contributed to athletes’ safety while establishing a new design trend: quality athletic equipment that integrates perfectly in the context of the sporting event.
World Athletics and MONDO technicians worked together to take their 35-year partnership to a new level, giving the equipment a major makeover by combining technology and design components while maintaining maximum reliability, comfort, and safety for both athletes and officials.
The new athletics equipment line comprises more than 30 completely redesigned products, including the iconic lane marker cones, hurdles, drop zones, high jump and pole vault stands, and athlete benches, with elements that are meant to enhance the events for fans who watch from home as well as in the stadium by providing immediate, additional information about the competitions.
The new equipment features integrated LED technology that causes lights to activate as the events progress.. The vertical uprights used in the pole vault and high jump competitions have vertical LED stripes that can display jump validity and new records. All the elements that incorporated LED are controlled from a touch-screen computer.

For the upcoming World Athletics Indoor Championships Belgrade 22, MONDO supplied more than 230 pieces of personalized athletics equipment manufactured in its Zaragoza production center in Europe.
“It’s always a challenge to manage the track equipment production for such a relevant competition, considering our main goals: to guarantee safety during the competition and product quality, in order to assure the best performance for the athletes and the highest engagement with spectators.” said Ignacio Mercado, R&D and Sport Equipment Manager.
World Athletics declared: “World Athletics is excited to showcase the new Mondo range of sports equipment which was created with the objective of innovating and incorporating the new brand of World Athletics. The collaboration between World Athletics Competition, Brand, Event Presentation and MONDO brought this amazing range of innovative design to life which we are pleased to share with the athletics world.”
MONDO will supply the new range of sports equipment for other major events this year, such as the World Championships in Athletics Eugene, the World Championships in Athletics U20 Cali and will always be the official supplier of athletics equipment for the next European Championships scheduled from 11 to 21 August in Monaco.
