Depends on how long the pool is.
One lap of the pool is usually 25 meters or yards. An Olympic pool is 50 meters long.
From one end to another end of the pool, it would be 25 meters.
A lap in an Olympic size pool is down and back, it's just farther than doing a lap in a 25 meter pool. A lap in an Olympic pool is 100 M whereas a lap in a regular pool is 50 M.
A competition pool that has 8 lap lanes that is 50m long is 25m in width.
1 lap in a pool that is 150 metres long!
A lap pool is usually 40' long with a width of either 10', 12', or 14'.
A regular pool lap is 25 yards, or meters. In professional racing, such as the olympics, a 50 meter pool is used.
A rectangular pool shape is longer than it is wide. A lap would be comprised of swimming the length of the pool.
lap swim is swimming from the starting place of the pool up to the other end of the pool. . .
