The London Organising Committe of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has today announced that Mondo has become a tier 3 supplier to London 2012.  Mondo, an official IAAF Supplier, becomes the Official supplier of sports flooring and equipment.

At Games-time, Mondo will supply the track and warm up track for the Olympic stadium, athletics equipment such as hurdles, high jump bars and hammer cages, surface or sprung flooring for as many as ten different Olympic and Paralympic sports disciplines including basketball, table tennis, wheelchair basketball and goalball.

Mondo is an approved supplier of the IAAF and FIBA and has supplied the past nine Olympic Games, starting in Montreal in 1976 and most recently in Beijing in 2008.  Mondo will also supply technical support services, including installation, maintenance and cleaning.  In line with London 2012’s sustainability aspirations, the products provided are environmentally friendly throughout all stages of their life – from production using recycled materials, through to disposal.  Mondo has also agreed to provide some of the materials on a rental basis, with a pledge to reassign them after 2012 for future use.

LOCOG Chairman Sebastian Coe said, “I set my first world record and won Olympic medals on Mondo tracks so I know they will provide world class products and services for London 2012.  We look forward to working with them between now and 2012 to provide all athletes coming to the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games top class facilities and equipment.  This is another example of the innovative approach we are taking to our commercial programme, bringing world class suppliers to the table.”

Maurizio Stroppiana, Managing Director of Mondo S.p.A. said, “I am both proud and honoured to be able to sign our tenth contract to become suppliers to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.  Mondo continues to be the permanent and indispensible benchmark for the success of sporting events the world over.”
