Video: Inside the Olympic aquatic centre

In a week’s time it will be full to the rafters with swimming fans eager to see the world’s greatest swimmers competing for Olympic glory and the aquatic centre will be a fitting venue for the competition, as shown by this official LOCOG video. If you’ve seen any footage of the facility in TV programmes over the past few months it’s likely to have been taken from this film, but often only in snippets. Here is the full view of the inside of the Olympic pool

One aspect that doesn’t get as much attention as the main competition pool is the training pool which nestles under the concourse at the western end of the building. Here’s the LOCOG look at the pool, which will be used by swimmers for their last minute warm ups before heading to the call room and then for swim downs once they have negotiated the media mixed zone.
