In Olympic Swimming Pools there must always be 10 lanes. Although only 8 of these are used it still must have a lane rope between each lane, so there are 9 lane ropes used.
In a competition pool, the lanes are single color for the first and last 5 meters of a pool.
"On the ropes" is a colloquial term passed from boxing competitions, where a contestant was groggy, and holding onto the ropes round the ring for support. The implication is of being overcome, of weakness and distress.
A good resource for challenging physical courses in Canada is the Canadian olympic park. Many Canadian mountain/vacation resorts (such as Blue Mountain or Revelstoke) also offer ropes courses.
