      iaaf certification

      Class I requires extensive testing of the surface.

        Is there more of a breakdown? Stockholm Stadion is not listed.

          Stockholm

          http://www.conica.com/Conica/EN/Referen ... icstadium/

          = Laussanne, Rome and Stockholm have identical surface

          Can that fact work in Stockholms favour for the upcoming DN Galan next Tuesday? Now when the athletes are used to the Conica track from Lausanne and Rome?

                Who built this stadium? A university, a high school, the city?

                Is it Baylor?

                  I believe that is the new MJ track north of Dallas. I haven't seen it but Ken Cooper's clinic, currently located on Preston Road, just north of Forest Lane, in north Dallas is involved in this project and will relocate there next sometime next year.

                  I looked at all the pics and was struck by the magnificent stadiums and track facilities all over the world,, except in the USA.

                  One thing I noticed, the Berlin Olympic stadium is the only one with parallel, non-staggered runway into double wide pits at either end of runway.
                  (BTW, I am not a fan of double wide pits.)
                  Dallas is the only one of those where it can be determined which seems to have no horizontal jump pits
                  The Leverken, Germany has pits I have never seen. Parallel staggered pits joined by a meter wide sand connector from the back end of one pit to the front end of the other..

                    Any chance they are covered by the astro turf? It would make sense if the stadium is set up for football (and it looks like it is).

                      I suspect you are right, Daisy. Ken Cooper plans for that complex to be a traiing center and a major magnet for BIG competitions in all sports.

                        The Jesse Owens complex belongs to the Dallas school district . In another post, there was mention of it lacking long jump pits. They are in the "D" area at one end of the field, not along the straightaway.
