In 1983 the 50-meter pool at the USC McDonalds Swim Stadium was constructed to FINA standards of that time for the XXIII OLYMPIAD (1984 Olympic Games). Rowley International designed this all-deep-water pool with two moveable flow-through stainless steel bulkheads and was innovative in the use of 24” deep overflow gutter channels to disperse the flow of water and enhance the swimming environment for the swimmer. This “FAST WATER” concept has stood the “Test of Time” and is used extensively throughout the world in the premier competitive swimming pool facilities.
1983 the first World Record fell in this pool at the opening swim meet.
