Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre opened

Swimming has gained another world class facility in Sydney with the City of Sydney council officially opening the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre this week. The Centre, which is the last public building designed by the world renowned architect Harry Seidler, includes an Olympic-size heated pool, leisure pool, program pool, spa, sauna and steam room, café and fitness centre.

"Apologies I can't be there on this exciting day, but I look forward to visiting the pool on my return from the USA," the five-times Olympic champion said." (It means he is in West L.A. hanging in The 17th Man's neck of the woods.) [Link]
