The Invictus Games Orlando 2016 features wounded veterans competing in different events, including swimming, at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World.
Thing is, the ESPN venue didn’t have a pool, so two temporary ones were built for the games.
The pool venue includes a 50-meter, eight-lane pool for competition and a 25-meter, six-lane warm-up pool with seating for nearly 3,000. It took about a million gallons of water to fill both pools.
The construction took three-weeks, but Disney has compressed it into a 40-second video:
Pretty cool, huh? The swimming preliminary heats begin Saturday with the finals on Wednesday. Tickets are still available for these events, as well as the others, at invictusgames2016.org.
