Day Two: Eton Manor

Today is my first shift at the dedicated training venue on the Olympic Park itself.

The Eton Manor training facility is essentially a huge tent, I say huge as it has three 10 lane 50 meter swimming pools side by side; at one side there is a full size synchronised swimming pool and at the other is a full size water polo pool also attached to the top of the middle of the three Olympic size pools is a gym with all verities of equipment for the athletes to use. All this is joined by four changing rooms and a huge medical area where the athletes can receive massages and the like. Quite impressive if you consider that after all it’s just a temporary structure.

Step count for the day: 7,951
