Myrtha at Rio 2016: Olympics and Worldwide record star!

Since the Olympic Games began, there have been 8 World and 23 Olympic records set in the competition pool which has left many speculating on why this pool is so fast.

The swimmers themselves are of course an important factor; however, Myrtha has incorporated many different technologies into the design and construction of the pools, such as:

– Deeper gutters designed specifically for competition pools that absorb the wave action of swimmers;

– Myrtha sidewall inlets in place of traditional floor inlets which decrease turbulence on the swimmers,

– Increased pool depth;

– Incorporation of a buffer between the outside lanes and the gutter.

– The Defender filtration completes the state-of-the-art technology guaranteeing that the water is crystal clear and the quality is simply perfect, which is essential during international swimming competitions.

 

For these reasons, Myrtha Pools has been the choice for almost every major swimming competition worldwide and is a partner to most major swimming federations including FINA and USA Swimming.
