On a Mondo Track


30-Nov-2020

Tokyo's new Olympic Stadium equipped with a Mondo track will set the scene for the start of the 2021 World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting series; the news has been released last week by World Athletics.
The Continental Tour Gold meeting calendar for 2021 will feature 11 meetings in ten countries spanning four continents. 4 out of these 11 locatations have a Mondo track.

The Tokyo meeting on May 9th, which will serve as an Olympic test event less than 12 weeks before athletics action gets underway at the Olympic Games, will kick off the second season of the Gold series.

For many of the athletes expected to compete, this meeting will provide their first look at the state-of-the-art facility that will host the Olympic athletics competition as well as the Games opening and closing ceremonies.

MONDO Sport&Flooring, as the Sole Supplier of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, completed the installation of the Olympic and Paralympic track at the Tokyo Stadium in November 2019; the product installed is Mondotrack WS. The product, specifically developed for Tokyo, features rubber particles designed to improve the track’s responsiveness and uniformity, while maintaining the surface’s dynamic performance and ability to reduce athletes’ fatigue.

For the Olympic event our company will supply also a brand new athletic equipment set. For more info browse these pages: http://www.mondotrack.jp/jp/en/
