The London Aquatics Center designed for the 2012 Olympics has one of the most technologically advanced pools in the entire world.
Apparently, when there are a lot of swimmers in a pool at once, it is very difficult to swim extremely fast.
The waves created from each person creates energy that pushes the swimmers around, creating a slightly slower swimming time.
To minimize these waves, engineers have altered the pool's bottom, sides, and even the swimming lanes so that the waves can be absorbed into the pool itself.
This will allow each swimmer to reach their maximum swimming speed.
