NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

As a condition of the Australian Olympic Committee's endorsement of Sydney's bid for the 2000 Games, it was agreed that an international swimming centre and athletics track be built as a gesture of goodwill to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The result was, in the words of the President of the IOC Juan-Antonio Samaranch, "the best swimming pool I have seen in my life".

Opened in 1994, the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre has hosted several legs of the swimming and diving World Cups as well as the '99 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships. The centre has seating on either side of the pool. When first constructed, it had equal amount of seating on either side of the pool totalling 4,500 overall. For the Sydney 2000 Olympics, the seating on one side of the pool was increased dramatically to make the total capacity over 17,000 seats. After the Olympics, this side was reduced to approximately double the size of the seating on the opposite side of the pool to make the total capacity around 10,000. During the Sydney Olympics it hosted all of the swimming, diving and synchronised swimming, plus the finals of the water polo and the swimming leg of the modern pentathlon.
