Technical problems at Bristol Olympic training pool


The mechanism has failed that controls the bulkheads in the less than 5 months old pool at Hengrove Park Leisure Centre in Bristol, where Kenya’s Jason and David Dunford arrived to train this weekend. Divers are for now lifting them manually, so that the pool can be used both as a 50m pool as well as two 25m pools, the Dunfords saying that they are able to do “around 90%” of the training that was originally agreed.
