a good reason to be streamlined whilst breathing on both sides,
there seem to be 8 olympic pools in the UK (official 10 lane capable of international competition) with 4 more under construction
there are a further 40, 50 metre pools that do not meet international competition standards.
There are also some random long lido's
I think from memory this is about the same number as perth has on it's own.
