New world records on GEZOFLEX EPDM granules

As the venue for the 18th World Athletics Championships, Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon (USA) hosted the world's best athletes from July 15-24, 2022. GEZOFLEX EPDM granules from GEZOLAN were used for the nine-lane running track as well as for the surfacing systems of other competition areas. One of the reasons why this world championship will be remembered as one of the fastest for a long time. 

With 3 world records, 5 championship records, 4 national records and a world leading performance, a cluster of records were broken at the World Athletics Championships. Two of the three world records were set on the new nine-lane track in the running competitions. Sydney McLaughlin ushered in a new era on July 22, 2022. The US American flew to a sensational new world record in the 400m hurdles in 50.68 seconds. The Nigerian Tobi Amusan provided the second world record. In the semifinals of the 100 m hurdles, her time of 12.12 seconds was eight hundredths faster than the previous record.
