# Why did Ian Thorpe stop swimming?

Asked by Wiki User

WORLD record holder Ian Thorpe was disqualified from the 400m freestyle event at the Olympic swimming trials at the Sydney International Aquatic Centre today.

Thorpe overbalanced on the blocks and fell into the water before the official start of his heat on the opening day of the eighth selection trials. After returning to the blocks with the rest of the competitors, he was told by an official that he was disqualified.

Thorpe's manager Dave Flask as said the Olympic, World and Commonwealth champion heard a noise before he fell into the water and stated that Thorpe had lodged a protest. After officials viewed footage of the incident, Thorpe lost both appeals and is not scheduled to race in the event, losing a place to relatively unknown swimmer Craig Stevens.

Thorpe is ready to move on and has qualified for the 200 metre event, ensuring a place on the Olympic Team.

# What is the lane size for a junior Olympic pool?

Asked by Wiki User

A pool that is used for the junior Olympics (I'm assuming that's what you're referring to) is either 25 yards or 50 meters long, depending on the country you're in. In the US, the JO size is 25 yards.

AnswerThere really is no Jr. Olympic pool. If one is referring to a pool that is used for the AAU Jr. Olympics, the pool dimensions are the same as full grown Olympics. If one is referring to a pool that is smaller than an Olympic pool (Jr. in size) Then a short course pool is usually found. Here are the standards used for Olympic pools. I found this on the usaswimming.org website. Follow the following link.

http://www.usaswimming.org/USASWeb/_Rainbow/Documents/6d93bb35-b042-42e2-95c2-de5b83f74083/2005%20Rulebook1protected.pdf

AnswerThe lane size for any pool used in USA swimming championships and international competition is 8 feet 2 1/2 inches or 2.5 meters from divider to divider with approximately .45 meters or (1 foot 6 inches)of additional open water for the outside of the outside lanes. AnswerSince this is not a internationally recognized size, at least in US a Junior Olympic Pool would be either 20 meters or 25 yards. Neither of them truly is half of Olympic size pool.

Competition pools in the US are usually one of four lengths. They are 25 yards, 25 meters, 55 yards, or 50 meters. These lengths are chosen because only pools of these lengths are recognised for the establishment of record times by US swimming regulatory bodies such as USA Swimming. Recreational pools come in all shapes and sizes and are not CERTIFIED. Competition pools must be certified by an engineer to be within very strict limits so as to provide a standard length for setting records. International rules are different (see FINA ). If you want to determine conversions from meters to yards it is generally acceptable to add 10% to a yard time to yield a close approximation of a meter time. This is true because a meter is about 3.37 in longer than a yard. Mile distances are rounded to the nearest full length. For example a mile in a yard pool is 70 lengths or 1750 yds, actually 10 feet shorter than a mile. The best way to determine whether the pool you work out in is 25yds or 25 m is to get a tape measure and measure the pool.
