Two Records Set on Stobitan® SC Running Track at the
“Impossible Games” at Bislett Stadium

CLARKSBURG, WV – June 15, 2020 – STOCKMEIER Urethanes is
excited to announce that two records were set on a World Athletics
certified Stobitan® SC running track surface at the “Impossible
Games” at Bislett Stadium in Oslo, Norway.

Due to the coronavirus, the “Oslo Diamond League” meet was
canceled and replaced with the “Impossible Games” where 50
athletes competed in 13 events.

Nineteen-year-old, Jakob Ingebrigtsen, set a European and
Norwegian record in the 2000-meter event at a time of 4.50.04. This
time, at merely 5.5 seconds, almost beat the world record. Karsten
Warholm, 24, beat the world record in the 300-meter hurdles with a
time of 33.79 seconds on what he thought might have been a broken
toe from warm-ups. STOCKMEIER Urethanes and its staff would like
to congratulate these two gentlemen on their wonderful victories.

Christian Martinkat, Chairman of the Executive Committee of
Urethanes USA, Inc. states: “It is exciting to see a conventionally built

structural spray system, such as STOBITAN® SC, to be a track
surface for record breaking performances. We are proud to offer
quality products used for these world class track events.”
