International Swimming League, Championship Grand Final

Las Vegas 2019

December 20 & 21: The International Swimming League Grand Final in Las Vegas took place in a stunning pool with acrylic wall installed at the Mandalay Bay hotel. 

 

For this significant occasion, Myrtha Pools built a warm-up pool and a competition pool in the arena space, where the hotel usually hosts grand events and boxing matches. The competition pool is designed with a 21 m acrylic wall with a vanishing edge: something no one’s ever seen before during such important events.

The two temporary pools have been installed in just 10 days by Myrtha Pools certified installation teams along with local contracting and union support using Myrtha’s unique technology.

The flexibility of Myrtha Technology means building a pool above the usual ‘stage’ – causing no disruption to the hotel’s daily activities and no reconstruction of the existing arena.

In facts, the self-supporting and modular structure of Myrtha Pools technology offers an excellent solution for the installation of temporary pools inside existing stadiums, arenas or buildings, without the need to anchor the pools to the facility floor.

 

Myrtha promotes sustainability by being eco-friendly, reducing up to 50% of CO2 emissions compared with a traditional concrete pool.
In addition, the majority of the materials used for this event have been used at two previous temporary events, and also after the ISL Grand Final these pools will then be permanently reinstalled at another location, to completely maximize the use of the Myrtha materials.

 

The pools feature a skid mounted defender filtration system, which reduces water loss and contributes to the best water quality a pool can have. The pools will also be equipped with Strahlenturbulenz (STZ) inlet system, which optimizes the use of chlorine and pool chemicals because of great circulation in the pool, in turn reducing the amount of chemicals needed to achieve a chemically safe pool.

You do not want to miss this special on Myrtha Pools and one of its most difficult engineering challenges: the 7-day construction of the two competition pools inside the Mandala Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. The two temporary pools were erected for the grand final of the International Swimming League 2019 championships. Additionally, the competition pool was built with a transparent wall that allowed the athletes to be seen even during the underwater phases.
An excellent opportunity to see the behind the scenes of the construction of our pools.
