John Marzucco, AAE Founder at Center AAE founder John Marzucco demonstrates the rocking action of his new invention in the early 50's to a high school hurdler, as an assistant coach observes.

A genuine innovation often arises when it's least expected, but never without a passionate, committed person behind it. AAE founder John Marzucco was such an individual. A Penn State hurdle star in the 30's, he had the misfortune of taking a nasty spill over an old-fashioned wooden hurdle in a crucial meet, costing the meet and landing him in the infirmary. During his recuperation, the notion occurred to the young engineering student that equipment designed better could prevent such injuries and actually help athletes perform better. Thus began his lifelong dedication to creating track and field equipment for safer, improved performance.
Patented in 1950, the rocker hurdle has long since become a track and field staple. But its introduction was just the beginning for AAE. John soon teamed up with his nephew Tim Driscoll.

AAE is proud to pick up the torch carried for so long by John Marzucco.
