Son Hugo: Myrtha measures up once again
Renovated in 2021, the pools at the Son Hugo Centre in Mallorca are back in the news. This is a consequence of the international Open de Primavera swimming meet, as officials from the Spanish Swimming Federation, on behalf of World Aquatics (formerly known as FINA), measured the length of the indoor Myrtha pool in order to confirm the athletes’ performances.
This key event in La Palma holds special meaning for Iberian swimming, especially in terms of qualification for the Fukuoka World Championships for Spanish swimmers. The meet also is valid as a qualification event for next summer’s Paris Olympics for international swimmers, all of which makes precision measurement of the pool a fundamental requirement. And once again, the millimetric precision of the Myrtha technology was invaluable in meeting the rigorous standards required for international acceptance. Myrtha’s tradition of accuracy gives confidence to owners and national team organizers that high-level performances in these qualifying meets will be fully accepted. In particular, the results here at Son Hugo brought a huge sigh of relief for Portuguese swimmer Camila Rebelo, who was able to see her Olympic qualification in the 200-meter backstroke confirmed.
