The ASTRALPOOL Olympic swimming pool approved for water polo competitions
The Skypool building system of AstralPool
The swimming pool designed and built by FLUIDRA is intended to host the water polo competitions of the 2019 Pan American Games which will take place from July 26 to August 11, 2019. It integrates the sports complex Andrès Avekino Cáceres of the District of Villa María del Triunfo in the city of Lima (Peru).
The built swimming pool uses AstralPool's SkyPool construction system.

The panels are made of galvanized steel, offering durability and safety in its service life.
