Tarkett & the CNOSF - united in the Olympic Spirit
During this summer’s London Olympic Games, close to 14.000 athletes from 205 Olympic teams and 170 Paralympic teams will have been competing in a worldwide event which will have generated unseen performances through peaceful competition.
As the world leader in sports surfaces, Tarkett’s sports division (Tarkett Sports) has realised over 5.000 installations across the globe in synthetic turf fields, tracks, courts, gyms and field houses. Many of these installations count among the most prestigious venues in the world of sports, such as the Lucas Oil Field in the US, host to the annual Superbowl football championship, the Luhzniki Soccer Stadium in Moscow or the Proflex M mobile parquet for the National Pro A Basketball championship in France.
During the London Games, several Tarkett Sports surfaces have been installed in the Club de France, located at the Old Billingsgate site in London: artificial turf on the Club’s terrace space overlooking the Thames river, an athletic track and two layered parquet floors inside the main hall.
Partner of the French Olympic and Sports Committee since 2007, Tarkett Sports is thus participating in the daily celebration of French medallists in the Olympic and Paralympic competitions.
