Morning Swim Show: Remembering Indianapolis’ Broad Ripple Pool

PHOENIX, Arizona, May 19. TODAY'S edition of The Morning Swim Show goes back in time to research the history of the famous Broad Ripple Pool in Indianapolis, which once held the Olympic swimming trials in the early part of the 20th century and was the largest concrete swimming pool in the United States.

Bruce Wigo, CEO of the International Swimming Hall of Fame, takes us on a journey to track down the history of the pool that was used by Olympic legends Duke Kahanamoku and Johnny Weissmuller as well as a popular recreational facility. The pool no longer exists, but Wigo was able to find pieces of the pool in a bridge in Indianapolis. Be sure to visit SwimmingWorld.TV for more video interviews.
