An NFL stadium will be converted into a swimming pool this offseason.

Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts, is known for hosting NFL games and other events, including the NFL Scouting Combine. But it has never been a venue for swimming.

Still, there is a first time for everything. And the NFL stadium is now set to host the Olympic Trials.

The trials, held every four years, are by far the most prestigious swimming event in America. The team representing the U.S. in Paris will be chosen in Indianapolis.

Three temporary pools are currently being built in the stadium, two of which span 50 meters and one 25.

A timelapse video from USA Swimming shows exactly how it’s happening.

Check it out below:


The Olympic Trials Should Generate Millions For The City

The Olympic Trials will begin on June 12 and end on June 23. The event is expected to generate over $100 million for Indianapolis. If 30,000 people head to the NFL Stadium for all nine nights, which is the expectation, it will create an instant spike in the economy.

The venue will be divided into two halves. The main 50-meter pool for the competition will be on the southern end, with 10 lanes, while the warmup 50-meter and 25-meter pools will be on the north side of the Lucas Oil Stadium. They will all be three meters deep.

This is what it’s expected to look like:

As noted above, construction has begun and should be done in 7-10 days, giving the NFL stadium enough time to undertake a test trial and ensure that the temperature is correct.

Former ESPN Host Michelle Beadle Had Some Brutal Things To Say To Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker

Harrison Butker’s speech at a college has provoked debate, ire, and controversy, and now, a former ESPN host is speaking out against him.

Kicker Harrison Butker of the Kansas City Chiefs delivered the commencement speech to Benedictine College alumni on May 11, and nothing but backlash has followed him ever since.

He stated that Pride Month was a “deadly sin,” denounced abortion rights, and told women they had been given “the most diabolical lies” during his lecture to a private Catholic liberal arts institution in Kansas.

The Kansas City Chiefs kicker told women during his sexist commencement speech last weekend that their “most important title” should be “homemaker.”

“How many of you are sitting here now, about to cross this stage, and are thinking about all the promotions and titles you are going to get in your career? Some of you may go on to lead successful careers in the world,” Butker said. “But I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world.”

“I can tell you that my beautiful wife, Isabelle, would be the first to say that her life truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and a mother. … I’m beyond blessed with the many talents God has given me, but it cannot be overstated that all of my success is made possible because a girl I met in band class back in middle school would convert to the faith, become my wife, and embrace one of the most important titles of all: homemaker.”
