Rio de Janeiro. It is official: Mondo will be the Supplier for Athletic Tracks and Equipment for the 2016 Olympic Games. The agreement signed today between the Rio 2016 Organising Committee and Mondo S.p.A. is the latest testimony of the high regard that the world of athletics has for the Italian company.

"We could not have made a better choice" stated Agberto Guimarães, Sports Executive Director of the Rio 2016 Organising Committee. "We put our full trust in Mondo to guarantee great performances, safety for athletes and a memorable event for spectators"

Mondo's history says it all: the strength of 65 years' experience, 30 years as Official Track Surfacing Supplier for IAAF and, since 2004, also as  Official Athletic Equipment Supplier.

To this you should add 10 editions of the Olympics as a key player, thanks to its tracks, sports equipment and the experience gained in the sector.

Mondo's adventure at the Olympics began in 1976 with the Games in Montreal. Starting from Barcelona 1992, the company became the Official Supplier for athletics tracks and, in London 2012 it supplied equipment and surfaces for over 16 sports disciplines.

Rio 2016 will be Mondo's eleventh Olympics and follows the natural path of a steady, ongoing commitment. "This is a great show of faith in our company", commented Maurizio Stroppiana, General Manager of Mondo's Sport&Flooring Division. "It recognises our long-term commitment, which is something that is particularly appreciated in Brazil.”

"Mondo has been operating in Brazil since 1987: thanks to its engagement in the country alongside the local distributor Playpiso Pisos Esportivos LTDA, it gained the respect of the local federations of government bodies.

In almost thirty years' activity in the South American country, the Alba-headquartered company and Playpiso have installed over 70 athletics tracks, equal to almost 80% of the total market. Noteworthy Brazilian references include the Pan Am Games in Rio 2007, the 5Th World Military games in Rio 2011 and important national projects such as the Vale Oro program, the Universidade Federal Program and the Forza Armada Program.

Mondo's commitment to sport carries on: in its laboratories, the company finished a wide-ranging R&D project: with the occasion of the World Championships in Beijing 2015 to the company has showcased a new athletics track, Mondotrack WS, , which will be installed precisely for RIO 2016.

In the meantime, the company played a key role in the World Championships in Beijing 2015, with the full renovation of the Bird's Nest legendary track.

Mondo also featured at Baku 2015, in the Republic of Azerbaijan, where the first European Games took place from 12 to 28 June this year.

Mondo was also at Toronto, where the sixteenth edition of the Pan Am Games took place from 10 to 26 July 2015, as well as in the Bahamas, for the Relay World Championship from 2 to 3 May.

Mondo's race goes on: unstoppable, fast-paced and always in the name of sport!
