Or will it get a new pool? ---------- Stephen Wade ‏@StephenWadeAP Apr 4 One more of swim venue for Rio Olympics. Venue still under construction. Pool itself is temporary installation. --------------------------------------------------
  12. Any recent news on what overage players the teams will select? The Copa America being held this summer (June) causes problems. Normally the South American teams would have a free hand on which overage players to select however most clubs don't want players playing both tournaments.
  13. What are the Best and Worst Olympic Legacies in your opinion? Many factors to consider: Venues: White Elephants or thriving stadiums? Sports: Increase in participation + legacy for elite athletes? Economy: Boost or Bust? Environment: eg. Did Beijing smog decrease? Transport? Improved facilites What about human rights/democracies? Did 88 bring democracy to Seoul? Anything else you want to consider? Barcelona is considered one of the best, turned the city into a European hotpot https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=17&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjbn-XM_OrLAhWEaRQKHZKJCnI4ChAWCDUwBg&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.timeout.com%2Ftravel%2Ffeatures%2F1195%2Fchampioning-barcelonas-olympic-legacy&usg=AFQjCNGwoOffMvWxf_WKhY_ReNvq_zeNQg&bvm=bv.118353311,d.ZWU.
