Top-notch Swimming Pool - Australia

One of the world's most technologically advanced pools was officially opened yesterday at the renowned Australia Institute of Sport, in a bid to strengthen the country's chances at the 2008 Olympics. It cost US$12.75m to build the AIS Recovery and Swimming Centre in Canberra.

The centre features a 10-lane, 50m pool with in-built performance analysis and monitoring systems for the training, testing and development of Australia's elite swimmers and teams.

Analysis and monitoring systems packed into the pool walls and blocks, touch pads, magnetic timing gates and 24 fixed cameras will allow coaches and sports scientists to analyse all aspects of the AIS swimmer's performance in training.
The centre will also feature state-of-the art hydrotherapy and recovery facilities – three spa baths, a plunge pool, a cold water walk-through and a river for active recovery and stretching.
