Birmingham CrossPlex wins Indoor Track Facility of the Year
Mondo was honored for excellence in sports construction by the ASBA
The Birmingham CrossPlex facility was honored by the American Sports Builders Association, at the annual ASBA Technical Meeting, which was held this year in San Antonio . ASBA is an American organization for builders, designers and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities, which each year awards the structures built by its members who represent excellence in the industry. The Birmingham CrossPlex, located in Alabama, has been awarded Indoor Track Facility of the Year, which features a Mondo hydraulic banked track with a state-of-the art Mondotrack surface. The six-lane, 200-meter track system has two curved track sections that can be banked for high-speed running events. It can be set at any intermediate position between flat and fully raised, so it can be used for a wide range of events and by athletes with different skill levels. 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.
