How many laps make up a mile in an Olympic sized pool?
It's easy to calculate how many laps to a mile. Just ask someone who's working there if the pool is 100 meters or 100 yards. One lap is always down and back. If the pool is in yards it's almost 9 laps, if its meters it's closer to 8 laps. Happy swimming!
olympic pool length is 50 meters. thus, 15 lengths would be 750 meters. finally, if you consider a lap a roundtrip, 7 1/2 laps would be .75 km. Keep in mind, many people mistakenly refer to 25 meter pools as olympic pools; just because someone is telling you it is so doesn't make it an olympic pool: they are rare.
