For BSW, this partnership is almost an affair of the heart – and no wonder. At the 2009 World Athletics Championships, Usain Bolt demonstrated his exceptional ability in setting his world records on the blue Regupol tartan track at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. On-ly a year later, he and his sprint colleagues from the “Racers Track Club“ were training on the very same surface, delivered and in-stalled by BSW on the campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI) in Kingston, Jamaica. In the words of BSW export manager Peter Breuer, it was a genuine boost for Jamaican athletics as a whole and development the company is still extremely proud of. “The track has now been in use for nine years and is still very pop-ular with the sprint stars, as it’s extremely durable and there’s no variation in its physical properties. It always feels the same for the athletes and this is very important,” Breuer continues.
Under the auspices of legendary coach Glen Mills, the entire “Rac-ers Track Club” trains on Regupol. Since the advertising partner-ship began, the company has installed a number of synthetic run-ning tracks on the Caribbean island and this year will see the sev-enth track completed; this time on the campus of Jamaica College. More Regupol tracks can be found at the National Stadium, the ad-jacent Stadium East and the G.C. Foster College of Physical Edu-cation, where Jamaica’s athletics coaches learn their trade and ac-quire their qualifications.
For BSW, says Peter Breuer, Usain Bolt is the ideal partner to con-vince people of the quality of Regupol running tracks. “Usain Bolt can look back on one of the most intensive careers in modern sporting history. He is authentic and credible, and he stands for top performance, speed and success – just like our synthetic tracks.”
