The Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool, in the midst of a large-scale renovation, has requested more information from knowledgeable parties about the rich historical tradition of the pool.
The Belmont Pool Revitalization project is looking for photos, copies of newspaper articles or meet programs from some of the big-name meets to call Belmont home over the years, including the 1968 Olympic Trials, the 1969 AAU Nationals, the 1976 Olympic Trials and multiple Water Polo and Swimming NCAA Championships.
The group is also looking to update the pool records board, where the records appear to be about 20 years old. Anyone who knows of a Belmont Pool record broken in the past 20 years is encouraged to send that info, or even documentation of the swim, to the project organizers.
All of this information can be sent to the following address:
