Big East Conference Championships and MEAC ChampionshipsTwo more American Universities to host track & field meets on Mondo tracks.
Athletes at two more outdoor track and field meets at NCAA Division I universities in the United States this weekend will take their marks on tracks made by Mondo.
The 2012 Big East Conference Championships will take place May 4-6 at the University of South Florida’s USF Track & Field Stadium in Tampa, Florida. A one-of-a-kind facility, the stadium underwent a $2.79 million renovation that was completed in the fall of 2008. The highlight of the renovation was the addition of a Mondotrack surface, which was the official track of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and will be the track of the 2012 London Olympics. USF was the fourth U.S. university to install a Mondotrack.
Irwin Belk Track at Aggie Stadium on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina, is the site of the 2012 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Outdoor Track and Field Championships May 3-5. Aggie Stadium’s Super X Performance track from Mondo was installed in 2004 as part of a $1.5 million stadium renovation. “Mondo is one of the best surfaces in the world,” said Roy Thompson, director of track and field programs at North Carolina A&T. “This track made us one of the top sites in the country. Offering athletes this type of surface to train and compete on has also really helped our recruiting efforts. I can’t say enough about the surface. Mondo has a great product.”
