From the Beynon site:


 “Our sport is driven by results; with a Beynon track we feel we are giving our athletes the very best opportunity to achieve the desired result. This speaks to the very essence of our coaching philosophy; enthusiastically provide the very best situation for each and every one of our athletes to reach their goals and dreams in the sport. A Beynon track allows us to create an environment of success for all our athletes. Our new track is the center point of our program. It is the catalyst for all our programs goals. With this in mind – Beynon was the clear choice for our program.” – Dan Waters, Track and Field Coach, University of Alabama
