Atlanta 1996, Olympic Games

July 1996.

Myrtha Pools adds another important success to its already rich prize-record: after the Rome swimming pool in 1994, the Wien and Rio ones in 1995, the company builds a swimming pool [33 m x 25 yds x 2.2 m] at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, for the water polo competitions, on the occasion of the Centenary Olympic Games.
It was a completely self-supporting pool: the only part made of concrete was the perimeter curb on which rested the panels.
A reinforced PVC coat covered the sand floor.
The pool was installed in only 12 days and, at the end of the event, disassembled and reassembled at Lake Highland Preparatory School in Florida, where a 50 m x 25 yds pool has been built.
The Atlanta Olympic Games, called Centenary Games, have definitively consecrated at world level the quality of Myrtha Technology and its singularity for the temporary installations within official competitions.
