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.

So you would need to do 64 lengths to have done 1 mile.Which is 32 laps.32 Laps (down and back) = 1 mile64 Lengths ( 64 lengths X 25 meters/length = 1600 = 1 mile)Technically a mile is 1609 meters so you'd need to swim about 64.36 lengths if you absolutely must get to one mile exactly.There are 1,609.344 meters in a mile. Since there is confusion on what a "lap" is, I will include both a one length and two length answer.When 1 length = 1 lap, you would need to complete 64.3 laps for a mile (I would stop at 64 and call it a mile)When 2 lengths = 1 lap, you would need to complete 32.18 laps for a mile64.

Pools are typically in 25yd, 25m, and 50m lengths, but in the case of a 33m pool, there are 1609 meters in a mile, and 1609/ 33 = 48.75 So, 49 laps in a 33m pool would bring you a little over a mile.

1 mile = 1609m. 1609 m / 20 m / lap = 80.5 laps.

A mile is 5,280 feet, or 1,760 yards, which is the same as 1,609.344 meters.1600 meters would require 32 lengths of the pool. To get to a full mile, an additional 9.344 meters would be required.AnswerThe 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 )AnswerThese 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.
