A new Olympic swimming pool was recently opened in Nice, for exclusive use of the young athletes belonging to the Olympic Nice Natation Team, one of the strongest teams in France.
The Olympic Nice Natation includes among its members famous international swimmers such as Camille Muffat e Clement Lefert, and was awarded many medals during the FINA World Championship in Barcelona in 2013 and the London Olympics in 2012. The pool, built with Myrtha technology, is included in the big sport centre project in Nice, the Var Plane.
Thanks to the new pool, athletes have now a dedicated area for training. In the past they were hosted in the Jean Bouin pool, although it was only a temporary measure since professional swimming training, lasting 5 hours per day, required the exclusive use of the pool and interfered with other users.
The Olympic Nice Natation Myrtha pool is a 50x25m, 2 m deep. It consists of two removable heads, Myrtha Track Start starting blocks, targets, and LED lighting.
