Australian coach checks out new swimming venue

Head coach of Australian swimming team Alan Thompson is in Beijing to take a look at the new swimming center and to check out some of the competition. The Swimming China Open is the first event to be held at the new venue.

“We will have great level of comfort here because its layouts are similar with the Olympic aquatic venue in Sydney … (this way) the swimmers don’t have to look for things and that’s what they like, not to be confused,” Thompson said on Sunday.

Australia is a strong performer in the pool with Grant Hackett, Leisel Jones and Jessicah Schipper all expected to win medals.
