Inspired by the Olympics? Why not dive into your new pool?

The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio have recently come to a close, with the Australian contingent performing particularly well in the pool. Claiming 3 gold medals is a fantastic effort, even for a team with the lofty expectations and weight of the nation on their broad shoulders.
