Several meet records and personal bests were set during track's inaugural meet at NCAA Division I university
CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - March 22, 2018 - PRLog -- A new Mondo track will be the surface for two upcoming track meets at Sun Angel Stadium on the campus of Arizona State University: the Pac 12/Big Ten Challenge, March 23-24, and the Sun Angel Classic, April 6-7.
The new Joe Selleh Track at the NCAA Division I university has a Mondo Super X 720 surface. Made by Mondo, the global leader in the track and field, and indoor sport flooring markets, Super X 720 is engineered for speed and comfort. It provides the optimal blend of energy return, comfort, safety and durability for everything from daily training to the toughest competitions. Strong vulcanized rubber provides optimum traction while a unique textured bottom layer generates a cushion of air for extreme comfort and allows swifter transitions as the foot rolls from the 5th to the 1st metatarsus.
Green and sustainable, Super X 720 is:
—GREENGUARD Gold-certified for better indoor air quality;
—Granular-free for healthy waterways;
—Heavy metal-free and will not leach into the environment;
—Bacterial, microbacterial and fungal resistant; and
—100 percent recyclable.
Last weekend during the Baldy Castillo Invitational, which was the first meet held on the Super X 720 track, several meet records and personal bests were set.
