Swimming in China is quite popular as a sport. Yet, outside of the country’s sports schools and elite competition, there are ordinary people who see it as a hobby and a chance to rest. For most of the Chinese swimming pools – this is just a place to cool off after working hours and rest. During the peak days of summer when the heat becomes unbearable, swimming pools are painted in a riot of colors and are filled with people to failure. Thousands of people have dipped into the water to avoid scorching high temperatures. China’s public swimming pools are filled with so much that they can barely move, let alone how to swim.
Given the number of public swimming pools are sorely lacking and in summer it becomes a real problem. Local authorities do not want to build a large number of pools, as will serve them throughout the year, while the visitors come here mostly during the summer season. The study was also observed that because of such a large percentage of bacteria in the water in 2008 one person was killed and 3158 swimmers were critical of poisoning by swallowing water from one basin only Moa Mao in Beijing. This gigantic pool is able to accommodate as many as 47,000 people. Toxicologists taking water samples were shocked at the percentage of urine and feces in it was 90% of the total mass.
