See how the pools will be built in the MEN arena| 01 May 2007
Check out the podcast section where we have uploaded videos of how the last two temporary pools have been built in Shanghai 2006 and Melbourne 2007.
In Manchester 2 pools will be built in the MEN arena. The main pool will be a competition standard pool where all the action will take place with 7500 seats surrounding it. The other pool will be behind a curtain and not visable to the general public and will be for the athletes to warm up before they race and swim down after the race.
