About Aquatics Centre
The $516 million Aquatics Centre was completed in February 2020 but its grand opening was postponed by the virus.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was finally held in October 2020 at the 15,000-seat venue in the Bay Zone for swimming, diving and artistic swimming events.
The main pool features a movable wall allowing the 50m facility to be converted into two 25m pools, with the depth also adjustable.
Tokyo hopes to make the most of the facility after this summer, aiming to attract one million users a year, mostly through swimming competitions but also allowing casual punters to swim.
