The Mexican Olympic Sports Center (CDOM) was selected to have an air quality monitor installed.
The monitor will collect air quality data in real time, measuring the levels of several pollutants and, with it, assessing the impact of environmental pollution on the performance of the athletes, as well as designing new policies and strategies to counteract it.
The IAAF has been conducting the pilot programme in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), National Olympic Committees, national federations and government organisations since 28 May 2018.
Mexico’s CDOM athletics track was selected by the IAAF to represent the North American and Caribbean area and it is the fourth installation of its kind following installations in Monaco, Addis Ababa and Australia.
The ultimate aim of the programme is to develop an air quality monitoring network linking 1000 IAAF-certified tracks around the world.
