And what would be the largest swimming pool in the world without the largest swimmer in the world. The largest swimmer is found in London right on the south bank of Thames, between the Tower Bridge and City Hall. The statue is partially immersed in the grass only displaying head, arm recovery, buttocks and foot above the ground. The largest swimmer statue is massive 10 meters long and in reality has nothing to do with swimming, but was erected to promote a tattoo TV show, London Ink. However, with the London 2012 Olympics coming soon, this could be the attraction to watch out for as swimming is one of the most prestigious events in the Olympics in general.

It now makes me wonder, what will Dubai do? Are they going to sit back and take the beating by the Chileans and British folks? Perhaps the world’s deepest pool or the world’s fastest pool is in order :).
And why am I talking about the largest swimming pool and the largest swimmer on this blog. Well, sometimes, it is good to shift your focus on other things than just swimming with perfect technique and let you mind relax and recover. So next time you are swimming and you feel like it is not your day, why not just go to sauna or play in the water with bubble rings. You will not loose anything and more importantly you will feel better.
