Kazan 2015 World Swimming Championships have just finished: from July 24 to August 9 great surprise and breathtaking excitement for all water sports fans!
Six is the total number of new world records achieved by the best swimmers during these two weeks of outstanding competitions performed in our Myrtha Competition Pools: two by American Katie Ledecky (800m and 1500m freestyle), one scored by South African Cameron Van Der Burgh in the 50m breaststroke – beaten after only a few hours by British Adam Peaty; one gold went to Hungarian Katinka Hosszu (Mixed 200m) and one to Swedish Sarah Sjöström who won the 100m butterfly.
Great debut also for the new “Myrtha Backstroke System”, a prototype designed to assist backstroke swimmers during start. Completely adjustable to the needs of each swimmer, and used for the first time at World Championships, Myrtha Backstroke System provides the athlete with stable support and a much safer grip, thereby improving timing and performances.
The three temporary Myrtha Pools were installed specifically for the event inside the Kazan Arena Stadium and at the nearby Arena at Aquatics Palace, also temporarily built for the championship. Sold to the Republic of Tatarstan, these pools will soon be re-installed elsewhere within new swimming centers in Tatarstan.
