This is quite remarkable.
In 1972 a swimming pool was built in Dagenham, London, and for 39 years it was used and enjoyed by the local community. No-one could have expected its last 30 days to be like this…
The transformation took less than two weeks. Four days to drain the pool, followed by six days of construction, comprising of 10,000 nails, 75,000 screws and 3000m of wood. Staggering. Full story here.
40 international level BMX riders opened the park at an extraordinary event. The tricks and skills on display merely do justice to the feat achieved by Nike 6.0 in transforming ‘the old swimming pool’ into ‘The Pool’, and what’s more the venue is free to ride for the next fortnight (until June 12th).
A truly inspirational story.
