Myrtha Pools Symphony # 5 In Omaha
In just two weeks, the CHI Health Center in Omaha was transformed from a basketball arena to an aquatic centre ready to host athletes, coaches and fans. From June 4th to 7th the first set races will happen at Wave I in Omaha, with the second and decisive Wave II event happening June 13th to 20th. This is the fifth time around for Myrtha Pools in Omaha, the most awaited one, because of the return of spectators to major sporting events after a challenging year. As confirmed by Roberto Colletto, CEO of Myrtha Pools: “It’s really good that after so long and after an unusual year we finally see swimming events starting again and I’m happy that the first big event if you would consider world class with crowds and action it’s going to happen in Omaha for the qualifying event for US team for Tokyo Olympics and it’s going to be of course in our Myrtha pool. First of all, I have to thank once again USA swimming for having put their trust in us for the 5th time. The first one was in Long Beach in 2004 and then, 4 times in a row in Omaha”. Good luck to the swimmers, coaches and the volunteers.
