The Swiss company Conica is one of the world‘s leading suppliers of athletics running tracks. Now the company has negotiated a cooperation agreement with the Hungarian Athletics Federation. Both parties want to benefit from their respective know-how and experience. First and foremost, the track producer and the federation aim to cooperate in the field of athletics track research and development. The aim is to equip selected stadiums in Hungary with state-of-the-art running tracks in time for the 19th World Athletics Championships in 2023.
Miklos Gyulai, President of the Hungarian Athletics Association, is looking forward to cooperation: “Conica as a company is an absolute expert in the area of running tracks. It has been proven often enough that athletes perform at their best on a Conica surface – most recently when Joshua Cheptegei broke the world record over 5,000 meters on a CONIPUR Vmax track at the Herculis Diamond League Meeting in Monaco in 2020. The quality of the material is easy on athletes’ foot and leg muscles, and the technology is designed to make them faster. We, as host of the 2023 World Championships, are very happy and grateful that Conica has joined us as a supporter,” says Gyulai.
“On the part of Conica, we are pleased to have entered into another partnership with a large and successful athletics association. Getting feedback from athletes and coaches directly from the running track is of tremendous importance for our R&D. We look forward to a long-term and fruitful collaboration,” said Julio Fernando Fadel, Head of Marketing & Communication. Conica has been developing and producing innovative seamless flooring solutions based on polyurethane and epoxy resins for sports, games, leisure and other sectors for over 40 years.
