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.
As is the case with the majority of major sporting events around the world, watching athletes bring home the gold from the comfort of the lounge room, often sparks a fire in the belly, which gets us up off the couch and into a mindset that would inspire our beloved Bruce McAveney to describe as: DELICIOUS!
Despite the fact joining the Aussies in the green and gold for Tokyo 2020 could be a tall order for even the most dedicated swimmers, you can now perfect your backstroke in the comfort of your own backyard with the help of a lap pool, designed just like a racing lane.
A backyard swimming pool is perfect for you if you love the water or are interested in a low-impact workout that delivers outstanding endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. But where should you start before diving head first into a backyard pool project?
