Lane 3 - Our Windsor posts "Pan Am pool built for speed. Depth, contours, wider lanes make aquatic centre pool one of the world’s fastest. What evolved is a sophisticated approach to give swimmers every advantage. Decks are gently sloped up from the pool, which quells waves, to a drainage system so water pushed out of the pool does not splash back. Instead it goes into a holding tank designed to instantly release the same amount of water back into the pool so the level never changes."

DAWN Fraser is one of Australia’s most celebrated Olympians, if not our most celebrated. Long before and after the likes of Cathy Freeman or Ian Thorpe, Fraser was — and to many still is — the very face of Australian Olympism, of Australian sport. You could now argue that she is becoming the face of Australian intolerance.
