SASKATOON CELEBRATES OPENING OF A NEW TRACK AT REVAMPED FIELD HOUSE
MONDOTRACK WS IS THE PRODUCT CHOSEN
Mayor Charlie Clark and members of the community helped to celebrate the installation of the new track surface at the Saskatoon Field House with an “inaugural lap. The newly renovated Saskatoon Field House at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, now boasts a MONDO track surface that is the same one that will be used at the Olympics. Clark said the MONDOTRACK WS was chosen because it would be as versatile as possible and would “attract all kinds of events.”
Jody Hauta, the city's manager of recreation facilities and programs, said the Mondo track flooring is the “best running track material on the market.” He also said the surface not only provides a shock absorbency appreciated by elite athletes and the general public, but it’s also fast. “Our track athletes are ecstatic,” he said. “They're looking forward to breaking some of the provincial records.”
The track was installed by Carpell Surfaces.
