View of shot put rings from top of bleachers.
Jumping pits on south end of stadium.
Close up of main shot put ring.
Detail of hammer/discus ring. The hammer insert is made of steel or aluminum, but they also have a rubber one (interconnected as well) under the stands.
Close up of hammer/discus ring showing texture of ring. It's a good combination of grip and speed. Contains relatively large stone agregate that's been sanded down. And yes, everything is under an inch of water. No drainage holes that I could see.
Beginning of javelin runway.
Thrower's view of the Jav runway.
The business end of the Jav runway. Note the "wide" part is only about 25' long, and the thin part of the runway is around 3' wide. A bit cramped comparatively if you're carrying a lot of speed and/or doing a lot of cross overs.
View of the other shot put ring, further from the stands.
Main long/triple jump runway. Notice the measurement markings, measured in feet, every foot. Nice touch! Note however they're measured from the long jump board, not the triple jump.
Joggers beware! Not sure if the 3/16" spike rule seen here will be enforced...
Secondary 100/110mh start area on the back stretch. Yes, that IS a pole vault box in lane 4! I've NEVER seen that before!
Main Long/triplejump runway, secondary pit. I'm dubious that this will be used, due to obvious neglect and the fact that the runway butts up to a retaining wall, potentially limiting running room.
Closer "jumper's view" down the jumps runways.
Take off boards are standard 20cm with 10cm foul board, painted purple.
Close up of main sand pit area.
Steeple chase pit on south side of stadium.
The other side of the steeple pit. Pretty standard stuff I think.
View of jumps runway and retaining wall.
Main starting area on south end of track.
Main Pole Vault pit. Prime location for spectators.
High jump area at North end of track. Note giant logo painted in white. Texture is unchanged/same traction as regular surface.
View looking down first turn.
View from start of high jump run up.
Hurdle storage area by side of track. Nice touch!
Pain. A look down the back stretch.
Main scoreboard close up. Note sheets of rain coming down. But no matter, "everyday's a great day for track and field!" as my old college coach would say.
View of bleachers from the high jump pit.
The ideal facilities for the thrower: Concessions conveniently close to the circle ;)
(I'm a thrower, I can make the eating jokes)
