The OAS consists of an indoor swimming pool measuring 50 x 25 x 2 m with a capacity for 18,000 spectators. It is going to host the olympic and paralympic swimming trials, as well as the semi-finals and finals of water polo. the OAS brief includes another indoor swimming pool of 50 x 25 x 2 m. for swimmers’ training purposes.
