This year in 2012, Chartres is honored to host the European Short Course Swimming Championship, which is of course take place in L'Odyssee.
The European swimmers will give their best race here in 25m pool - Bassin Olympic
Young children have their own space... although my 4 years boy prefer the deeper pool - he said this space is too shallow for him!
Do you see the two signs on the photo? Yep... no running (Watch out for slippery floor!) and no photography...oops! I took those pictures when I accompanied my son's class for the swimming lesson when the pool has no yet opened for public. Now you know why there are no people on the pool.
