Apr 10, 2015
On April 10th & 11th, the John McDonnell Invitational at the University of Arkansas, will take place at the Division I school’s John McDonnell Field on Mondo’s newest track surface, the Super X 720. John McDonnell Field is one of only five 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. “The Mondo Super X 720 track has literally been a game changer for us,” said Chris Bucknam, head coach, Track and Field, University of Arkansas. “This surface, which combines the necessary properties for great performances during competition with a forgiving feel during training sessions, is unmatched in the industry today.
The second meet, the Johnson C. Smith Invitational, at Johnson C. Smith University. The Irwin Belk Complex (Division II) features a Mondotrack, the same track surface of the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympic Games.
