Olympic Sports Park Swim Stadium

Olympic Sports Park Swim Stadium

The Olympic Sports Park Swim Stadium was a venue used for the diving, swimming, water polo, and the swimming portion of the modern pentathlon events for the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam.

The swimming basin was made of reinforced concrete that was 50 meters long by 18 meters wide with the deepest part near the diving area at 5 meters. Stands were erected at both sides with one of them at most accommodating 6000 spectators. There were 20 men's and 16 women's dressing rooms.

A temporary structure, it was demolished following the Olympics in 1929.
