Training track in Jamaika

New training track for Usain Bolt and his team colleagues

Since 1. Mai 2010 Usain Bolt and his team colleagues of the „Racers Track Club“ do their training on a blue Regupol tartan® track made by BSW. Construction of the track is part of the advertising contract between BSW and Usain Bolt. The synthetic running track on Bolt's training grounds in Jamaica is the same colour as the running track in Berlin's Olympic Stadium.

As soon as the building season on Jamaica started, a team of BSW employees was sent on the Caribbean island to perform and supervise the work, from producing the sub-base through to applying the lines.

In next-to-no time a Regupol® AG synthetic track pursuant to IAAF standards was created which is also supposed to host competitions.

The so-called "high-stress areas", the areas that see the greatest use from the first-rate athletes, i.e. where they do most of their running and where they train their starts, have been given a special treatment to cope with the high-stress use. It is a running track for professionals providing ideal conditions to Usain Bolt to prepare for upcoming events.

Will he break his own record? Usain Bolt says:

"Watch out, 'cause I do my training on Regupol®!"

The advertising partnership between Usain Bolt and BSW initially ran for five years and was extended in 2014 and again in 2016. The Jamaican athletes will be running on their tartan track even longer.
