The featured track of the day today is another nice-looking, all-weather track. This one today is found at Cooks Gardens in Wanganui. Competitions have been going on at this location since 1896, so there is a long history. One significant event that occurred here happened on January 27th, 1962, when Peter Snell broke the world record for the mile. Snell is a 3-time Olympic gold medalist, and also held the world record in the 800m. The facility was upgraded in 2004, including a new track surface. The bleachers her can seat up to 3,500 spectators. Athletics Wanganui is the club that gets to call this track home. This one looks great!
