An Olympic-sized pool is 50 meters long by 25 meters wide and runs to a depth of 2.0 meters. A mile is 5,280 feet, or 1,760 yards, which is the same as 1,609.344 meters. 16…00 meters would require 32 lengths of the pool. To get to a full mile, an additional 9.344 meters would be required. The above is true, technically. However, if you are asking how many lengths the Olympic event "the mile" is, it's actually 30, because it's the 1500. No offense intended but "technically" and in all actuality there is no swimming event currently in the Olympics called "the mile" but instead there is the 1500 meter freestyle mens (refer to Swimming | Olympic Sport | London 2012 Summer Olympics| 1500m freestyle men - Olympic.org ) These are both true, but, if you're swimming in a 25 yard pool it's 66 laps- that's a 1650. When you're swimming in a 50 meter pool, like in the olympics, it's just a little bit over 30 laps if you want to be exact, but the swimmers only swim 30 laps.
In meters, the dimensions of an Olympic size swimmming pool are: 2 meters deep, 50 meters long, and 25 meters wide. If 1 meter equals 100 centimeters, just multiply each… dimension by 100.
it varies...could b:. 25 yards. 25 meters. 50 yards. 50 meters. (in order from shortest length to longest)
an olympic sized swimming pool is 50m long and 8 lanes wide addendum: for trivia sake, the width is 25 meters and the depth must be 2 meters.
50 metres hope this is what you needed mwah
50 meters but people use usually 25 yards to swim laps.
Less than one, because one length in an Olympic pool is 50 meters.
Twenty in a 50 meter pool (Olympic), or 40 in a 25 yard pool (collegiate). However, there is no 1 km race in an olympic pool, it is either an 800 meter or a 1500 meter, …which they call the mile.
One length of an Olympic sized pool is 50 meters.
A lap in an Olympic size pool is down and back, it's just farther than doing a lap in a 25 meter pool. A lap in an Olympic pool is 100 M whereas a lap in a regular pool is 50 …M.
There are many different lengths of pools. The most common is 25 meters. There are also 50 meter pools.
Can't be answered, as pools come in different lengths.
