RunBlogRun opines: MONDO has done much for our sport. They donate tracks around Olympic and IAAF sponsorships and they have supported our sport for many years. This is a nice partnership. Especially with cutbacks for Athletics Canada, this allows the federation to grown the sport with our friends to the North.
