Province Swim Pool in Chengdu. This is a 50-meter pool, all deep water, 8 wide lanes. You can't see the seperate diving well in the photo. Now the large flag has been replaced by a modern scoreboard with video. Those are temporary bulkheads on the outside 2 lanes so a 50-meter course can be swum in the middle of the pool.
