Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES

GAINSVILLE, Fla., March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This weekend, during the 77th running of the Pepsi Florida Relays at the University of Florida March 31-April 2, more than 4,200 high-school, collegiate, Olympic and professional athletes will be competing on a Mondotrack surface. This ever-growing meet is one of the nation's premier track and field competitions.

Made by Mondo, the global leader in the track and field, indoor sport and contract flooring markets, the Mondotrack at the NCAA Division I school’s James G. Pressly Stadium at Percy Beard Track is the facility’s second Mondo surface. Before the university chose Mondo, it had to resurface its urethane track every three years.

About Mondo’s Tracks

The competition track of the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympic Games, Mondotrack builds on the success of the company’s renowned Mondo’s Super X Performance track. Designed for superior athletic performance, Mondotrack provides optimal traction and a greater contact area than other tracks. It converts the maximum amount of force generated by athletes’ foot strikes to energy for maximum energy return, which helps athletes achieve faster times compared to running on other surfaces.

The world’s top track for more than 30 years, the Super X Performance track is recognized as one of the fastest, most durable and environmentally safest tracks available. An official track surface of eight Olympic Games through 2004 and the competition track from 1992 to 2004, Super X Performance was designed to provide consistent performance throughout its life. Ideal for both training and high-performance competition, the track is renowned for its shock absorption and optimal energy return, and its ideal blend of speed and comfort minimizes the occurrence of injuries.

More than 250 world records have been set on tracks made by Mondo.
