Records to Tumble on World's Fastest Track Compliments of BASF

The IAAF World Championships in Athletics, which begin on August 15 in Berlin, are the world's biggest sporting event of 2009. There's no doubt that records will be broken again when the top runners from the United States, Jamaica and Ethiopia compete. This is because the running events will take place on one of the world's fastest tracks.

The blue track of Berlin’s Olympic stadium offers athletes optimal running conditions thanks to BASF products.

The surface of the distinctive blue track of Berlin's Olympic stadium contains CONICA products from BASF. The three-layer synthetic surface offers athletes optimal running conditions: while the hard but nevertheless elastic top layer ensures maximum return of energy to athletes, the soft lower layers protect the athletes' joints. The surface is poured in one piece, which makes it waterproof as well as temperature and weather resistant. The outstanding quality of the track surface in Berlin has been confirmed by the award of an IAAF Class 1 Certificate from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
