TorchbearerSydney Posted February 6, 2014 Report Share Posted February 6, 2014 I've actually wondered why the North Sydney Pool wasn't converted for use as the diving pool for the 2000 Olympics. While Homebush is an amazing venue, it would have offered the 2000 Games a similar perspective as the famous diving events from Barcelona. Missed opportunity: Rio is going to be absolutely incredible. Love that pool, built for the 1938 Commonwealth Games. Diving would have been good, but they actually had to quickly nominate (and build/ refurb) a second pool for water polo when the womens event was added. I thought North Sydney was a no brainer. The weather was spectacular during Sydney 2000 (except a day and a half) so it would have worked a treat! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
