STOCKMEIER Urethanes is excited to announce that two records were set on a World Athletics certified Stobitan® SC running track surface at the “Impossible Games” at Bislett Stadium in Oslo, Norway.
Due to the coronavirus, the “Oslo Diamond League” meet was canceled and replaced with the “Impossible Games” where 50 athletes competed in 13 events.
Nineteen-year-old, Jakob Ingebrigtsen, set a European and Norwegian record in the 2000-meter event at a time of 4.50.04. This time, at merely 5.5 seconds, almost beat the world record. Karsten Warholm, 24, beat the world record in the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 33.79 seconds on what he thought might have been a broken toe from warm-ups. STOCKMEIER Urethanes and its staff would like to congratulate these two gentlemen on their wonderful victories.Christian Martinkat, Chairman of the Executive Committee of STOCKMEIER Urethanes Group and CEO of STOCKMEIER Urethanes USA, Inc. states: "It is exciting to see a conventionally built structural spray system, such as STOBITAN® SC, to be a track surface for record breaking performances. We are proud to offer quality products used for these world class track events."
