169 World Records for Myrtha Pools

Elite-level swimming is increasingly synonymous with Myrtha Pools. A partner of World Aquatics (formerly FINA) since 2009, Myrtha Pools is once again part of a world record swimming performance. The most recent benchmark was set by Ireland’s Daniel Wiffen in the 800-meter freestyle at the Short Course European Swimming Championships in Otopeni, Romania. Wiffen finished in 7:20.46, besting the mark established by Australia’s Grant Hackett by nearly three seconds. It is the 169th world record to be established during competition in a Myrtha pool, an astonishing number for a family-owned company that has been a leader in the world of competition pools over the past three decades.

Essential to this distinguished achievement is Myrtha’s exclusive technology which ensures millimetric precision in pool construction along with perfect water circulation, thus avoiding the impeding effects of turbulence on the swimmers. These are two factors guaranteed by Myrtha Pools, and they also happen to be crucial in complying with World Aquatics standards for national and international competition. The Swimming Complex in Otopeni, a true gem for swimming and already well known after hosting the 2022 Junior World Championships, selected Myrtha Technology for both competition pools (one 50m with a movable wall, another 25m with a diving area) and other 4 pools for Learn to Swim programming, or relaxing after a training session.
