Original title: Tokyo Aquatic Center held its opening to defeat the leukemia female player
On October 25, Beijing time, according to Japanese media reports, the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic swimming competition venues and the newly built Tokyo Aquatic Center held an unveiling ceremony.
This is the last Olympic venue where the completion ceremony was held among the 6 newly-built Olympic venues. The swimmer Chijiang Lihuazi, who has defeated leukemia and made a comeback, attended the unveiling ceremony.
Diving and synchronized swimming with the theme of robots were also performed that day. Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike delivered a speech at the ceremony.
Chi Jiang's goal is to win a medal in the 2024 Paris Olympics. In the relay competition on the day of the ceremony, Chi Jiang and the Paralympic athletes formed a team to take charge of the final stroke of the 50-meter freestyle. The beautiful strokes won applause.
Chi Jiang said: “When I saw the swimming pool, I really felt that next year’s Olympics would be held here. It’s a great opportunity to talk to Paralympic swimmers and divers who don’t usually meet.”
This swimming venue with 15,000 seats is located near Tokyo Bay. Its cost is about 56.7 billion yen (about 3.6 billion yuan), and it is a large venue with the highest specifications in the world. There are 4 floors above ground and 1 floor underground. There will be about 15,000 auditoriums during the Olympics.
In order to adjust the distance and water depth, the wall and bottom of the pool are movable. Both the main swimming pool and the secondary swimming pool can ensure 10 50-meter-long swimming lanes, and there are also 25-meter-square diving pools with a depth of 5 meters.
The venue was originally planned to be completed in February and opened in March, but it was postponed due to the impact of the new crown. After the Olympics, the number of spectators will be reduced to about 5,000, and domestic and international competitions will be held and used as convenience facilities for improving health.
