Bergen City Council today announced the official name of the new and impressive Olympic sized swimming & diving facility in Bergen, Norway, to be named the ‘Alexander Dale Oen Arena’, or ‘ADO Arena’ for short.
It’s working title had until now been ‘Helleren‘, with growing support though for it to be named after the city’s legendary swimmer Alexander Dale Oen, after his untimely death in May 2012.
Alexanders’ big brother Robin Dale Oen states: ‘We are humbled and pleased that they have chosen to name the facility after Alexander. It is a fantastic honor, with this facility that will be for everybody’.
