DIBABA CHOSE MONDO FOR HER NEW WORLD RECORD

ON THE PERMANENT MODULTRACK OF SABADELL (SPA) | 2000m

World 1500m champion Genzebe Dibaba added to her growing list of record-breaking achievements by breaking the world 2000m record at the Miting Internacional de Catalunya in the Spanish city of Sabadell.

The athlete had already predicted her intentions on Monday, February 6th, the day before the race, and so it happened: Dibaba went on to stop the clock at 5:23.75. Although the 2000m isn't an official world record event indoors, Dibaba’s performance can be classed as an outright world record as it is faster than Sonia O’Sullivan’s outdoor mark of 5:25.36.

The track on which the new world record has been set is a Mondo Permanent Modultrack, a perfect example of Mondo’s commitment to research and design in sport. Mondo’s indoor banked tracks can be customized to suit the customer’s building limitations. The result is a configuration that always guarantees the athletes’ smooth passage from the straightaways to the bends, and that effectively counterbalances the centrifugal force on the athletes moving along the bends in any lane and event. This helps athletes achieve their top performances in complete safety and in a fair competitive environment.

In a few days Dibaba will attend the Copernicus Cup in Torun (Poland)being ran on another Permanent Modultrack made by Mondo.  She has already said that on that occasion she will try to break his previous record in 1500m.
We are confident that at this event she will perform at the top!

MONDO: ALWAYS ON ATHLETES' SIDE
