HARO Sports – Official outfitter of the 2018 Commonwealth Games

HARO SPORTS, 27.04.2018

Rosenheim – The third largest multi-sport event in the world, the Commonwealth Games, took place in April 2018 on the Gold Coast in Australia. More than 4,400 athletes from 71 nations competed for medals. HARO Sports supplied the appropriate sports flooring to ensure the world’s best athletes could achieve perfect performances.

The Commonwealth Games are an international sporting event, where the best athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations compete every four years in a variety of sports disciplines. The 52 member states primarily comprise former territories of the British Empire and its allies.

After the Olympic Games and the Asian Games, this event is the third largest multi-sport event in the world. In addition to most Olympic disciplines, the sports programme also includes some types of sports that are only popular in the Commonwealth countries, such as squash or cricket. More than 4,400 athletes from 71 nations took part in the competitions in 18 disciplines from 4 to 15 April 2018.

As host for the games, the Gold Coast in Australia offered the significant advantage that some 80 percent of the arenas were already in place and located in the immediate vicinity of the Athletes' Village.

HARO Sports ensures the best conditions for the competitors

The organisers of the Commonwealth Games had already opted for HARO Sports back in 2014, when a number of mobile centre courts were used in the competitions in Glasgow.

This year too, HARO Sports was the official outfitter for the basketball competitions in cooperation with Australian partner Aura Sports.

The mobile HARO Rome 20 was installed as a 628 m² FIBA certified court. The exceptionally high HARO quality standards are achieved in the manufacture thanks to the QMS quality assurance system and through compliance with the strict ISO 9001 standard.

The floor boards are connected by means of the patented interlocking system. This ensures a seamless surface that is completely even at the joints, which minimises the risk of injury for the players and allows perfect ball rebound. The multi-layer construction of the HARO Rome 20 floor offers the advantage of elasticity and stability, while the patented PERMADUR seal offers the ideal grip. The players can achieve top performances since the floor feels soft, yet the ball bounces perfectly.

The HARO sports floor is also a highlight visually. The court markings in the striking emerald green of the “Gold Coast 2018” emblem coordinate ideally with the oak wood floor.

Exciting games, perfect performance thanks to HARO Sports – the enthusiastic spectators and participants experienced it all at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
