Tokyo Olympic Swimming Venue Unveiled

Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic organizers unveiled the venue for swimming, diving and artistic swimming on November 21, 2019.

The Tokyo Aquatics Centre cost the Tokyo Metropolitan Government about $522 million, and can seat 15,000 spectators. The main pool features a movable wall and bottom so the length and depth can be changed to suit different purposes. Construction work is still in progress on the diving pool, and it is scheduled to be completed next February.
