Usain Bolt for REGUPOL
World record holder Usain Bolt has been promoting REGUPOL for years
Usain Bolt set the current 100m world record at the 2009 IAAF World Championships, clocking an astonishing 9.58 seconds. Days later, he sprinted through the finish in the 200m and ran away with yet another world record, a symmetrical time of 19.19 seconds. History was made and a legend born on our blue REGUPOL running track.

The advertising partnership
Shortly after his victories at the World Athletics Championship in Berlin, we contacted Usain Bolt, his coach Glen Mills and manager Ricky Simms to talk about a possible advertising partnership. Bolt was so convinced of the quality of REGUPOL running tracks that he and his management immediately agreed. After all this tim, the top athlete is still enthusiastic about REGUPOL.
„I am Usain Bolt. I was faster than everyone on REGUPOL running tracks.“
A REGUPOL running track in Jamaica
An important part of this contract was the construction of a new training and competition track for Bolt and his teammates from the Racers Track Club on their training grounds, the campus of UWI University in Kingston, Jamaica. Top sprinters continue to train on this REGUPOL tartan track under the direction of coach Glen Mills. Since 2010, several UWI Invitational track meets have been hosted at the World Athletics (formerly IAAF) certified facility.
„The track is great! We are very happy to have such an outstanding facility where we can do our daily training. None of my athletes has complained or got injured, ever since we are using the REGUPOL track and we are making great progress!“
Glen Mills, Coach Usain Bolt and Racers Track Club
„Usain Bolt can look back on one of the most intense careers in modern sports history. He is authentic and credible, and he stands for top performance, speed and success – just like our REGUPOL tracks.“
Peter Breuer, international Sales Director at REGUPOL
Jamaicans train on REGUPOL

Our running tracks in Jamaica can be found at the National Stadium, the adjacent Stadium East and at the G.C. Foster College of Physical Education, the training center for athletics coaches in Jamaica. Also at the prestigious Jamaica College, Kingston College and Calabar High School.
