The project is underway at Charleston Southern University! The university selected the complete APT package for the revamp of Buccaneer Field. Phase 1, going on now, is the installation of an APT Gridiron RS+52 football field. Following the field installation, Phase 2 will be the installation of a Rekortan M99 running track.
Nothing but the best for the Bucs! APT’s football turf has been installed at facilities such as the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice facility in 2013, Chicago Bears’ Walter Payton indoor facility, and the University of Alabama’s Hank Crisp Indoor Football Center. APT’s Rekortan M99 running track has been installed at several Olympic venues, Good Will Games, and has been the official surface of the Penn Relays since 1988!
CSU head coach Jamey Chadwell said, “We chose APT for our field turf because of their stat-of-the-art technology and extensive experience. Their product will allow us to have a playing surface that is of top-notch quality with exceptional performance. I have no doubt in my mind that we will have the best playing surface in the country going forward.” Click here to read what CSU has to say about the project.

Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa has won the men’s IAAF World Championship 400m final today in Beijing. Van Niekerk’s time was 43.48, with defending champion LaShawn Merritt (43.65) and Kirani James (43.78) close behind. This is the first time in history that three men have gone under 44 seconds in one race!
Van Niekerk has now earned the title of fourth-fastest man in history. This win also brings South Africa the first global victory at the 400m since the 1920 Olympic games.
Allyson Felix has chosen to run the 400m, not the 200m, at the upcoming IAAF World Championships. This year, Felix has proven to be the fastest woman in the world in the 200m and second fastest in the 400m, behind Bahama’s Shaunae Miller. Reports say that Miller may opt to only run the 200m this year at Worlds. Click here to read more.
