Rebecca Adlington opens new pool in Northampton
Double Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington has officially opened a multi-million swimming pool and dance studio at a school in Northampton.
The swimmer was welcomed to Northampton School for Boys where she was the guest of honour to open the new £4m swimming pool inside the newly built Edward Cripps Human Performance Centre.
The ceremony was held at the school to mark the completion work of the six lane, 25-metre swimming pool with moveable floor.
The new centre also includes a new dance studio and fitness suite.
Funding for the new building at the Billing Road school came from the Cripps family with the centre being named after the late Edward Cripps.
Rebecca was joined by members of the Cripps family and the design and build team who have worked on the project for the last 18 months.
