Many people ask - why the pool, why children’s sports? In fact, this is a unique case for us, when both the leadership of VEON and we, for our part, unanimously spoke out in support of the Olympic sport in Uzbekistan. This is our social responsibility, our investments in young people, future athletes and country prospects. We believe that everything that you saw today will provide new opportunities, and someone’s big dreams and victories will be realized!
According to the developers, the sports complex is a unique building 50 meters long and 25 meters wide, meeting all the requirements of preparing athletes for the Olympic standards. The building has all the conditions and opportunities for training, and the pool itself is not just a water structure, but a kind of training class, where both lecture and practical classes will be held.
The equipment from Spain and Denmark was imported to the object. Starting tables, dividing ribbons, flagpoles, stairs, markings of the bottom and end walls of the pool bowl meet the most modern requirements of the International Federation of FINA. The pool is fully ready for the international standard competitions - an interactive scoreboard, lighting equipment has been installed, special panels for the finish have been delivered.
