MONDO is an official supplier and the official sponsor of more than 100 sports federations and associations.
MONDO works closely with professional athletes and international universities to determine the perfect characteristics of track surfaces used in top level competitions. Through this collaboration, MONDO transformed the specific needs of athletes into new technologies and applied them to the MONDOTRACK WS surface used at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics to further improve its products for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
“MONDO does its utmost to ensure that athletes can improve their performance – not only because we want to provide the best conditions for their performance, but also to help them set new records during one of the largest and most exciting competitions in the world,” says Maurizio Stroppiana, Managing Director for MONDO S.p.A.
