Quiz: Why (or how) is this a 10-lane swim pool

Quiz time: We went to a different swim facility the other day -- and made a return trip today. We had a great time at QEII swim pool. QEII is, of course, short for Queen Elizabeth the second. But the quiz question asks, why (or how) is this a 10-lane swim pool. The block clearly shows the end (block at the start) of the pool and the side of the pool. The number on the block is 9. Humm.

You can post your answer / guess in the comments area.

The first lane is labeled lane zero and not lane one. Therefore, the tenth lane is labeled lane nine.

Spot on mate.

Well done.

Yes, this (QEII) pool has 10 lanes and the first lane is lane ZERO and the last lane is lane NINE.
