Members of Israel’s national swimming team sang praises for the “world-class” New Clark City Aquatics Center where they are training in preparation for the Tokyo Olympics.

“I travelled all around the world and saw thousands of aquatic complexes. New Clark City’s facility is among the best in the world!” David Marsh, former US Olympic swimming coach and professional adviser of the Israeli team, was quoted as saying in a BCDA press release.

“It’s a really nice pool with really nice surrounding views. And the bright color of the pool makes it look even better. More importantly, I like how the pool is really fast. Thank you for having us here!” said freestyle swimmer Andrea Murez.

Itay Goldfaden, who will take part in mixed medley relay, described the facility as “one of the best pools I’ve ever seen.”

“Just really amazing facilities. I’m enjoying my time over here,” added Ron Polonsky, who swims the 200-meter individual medley.

The 17-member Israeli swimming team’s pre-Olympic training camp in New Clark City is hosted by BCDA, its subsidiary Clark Development Corp., and Philippine Swimming Inc., the country’s governing body for aquatic sports.
