It depends in the standard of the simming race, for Olympic or World Championships then the pool has to have 10 lanes however only the middle 8 are used.
For lesser competitions it depends on how many lanes the pool has, usually a minimum of 6 however for smaller and older pools which are very rarely used there may be 4 or 5 lanes
There are 10 lanes in an olympic swimming pool
Typically 10 lanes.
there aren't any players in a race unless it is a relay, in a relay there are 4 people. in a race there can be anywhere from 6-10 people racing it just depends on how many lanes there are.
8 or 6
it is 6' long and there are 12 lanes. LOL
An olympic size swimming pool has 10 lanes however only the middle 8 lanes are used for competition, with the outside two lanes being used to prevent the swimmers' waves bouncing off the walls
10- 8 for swimming and two outside lanes to keep the backsplash down
The center lanes are assigned to the fastest swimmers.
when people swimming lanes divided by lane lines
There are many different kinds. The most common is 6 lanes. There are also a lot of 8 lane pools.
A heat in swimming is like a group of swimmers swimming the same event. Since only a certain number of swimmers can swim at a time (depending on the number of lanes, usually 8) they have to have swim at different times and usually they place heats on how fast they swim. So, if you have the fastest time going into the race then you'd be in the last heat and if you have the slowest time going into the race then you'd be in the first heat. Also they place you in lanes from slowest to fastest (if you have the fastest time you go in the 4th lane and slowest goes in the outer lanes). Hope this helps.

10 but they only use the inside 8
to keep the swimmers in there own lanes
Swimming lanes are about 2.5m, or 8ft wide
Competitive swimming pools widely vary in width. The width (in feet) changes depending on how many lanes it has. Most competitive pools have either six, eight, or ten lanes. An official Olympic sized swimming pool is 50 meters by 25 meters. It is ten lanes wide.
The definition of an Olympic size swimming pool is 10 lanes each 2.5 meters wide, however to prevent the outside lanes being disadvantaged by having to compete with the waves bouncing off the sides of the pool only the middle 8 lanes are ever used.
In a normal Olympic Pool there are 10 lanes. I'm not too sure what a semi Olympic pool is!
Most pools have six or eight lanes. The pools in the Olympics have eight, but smaller ones often have six.
An Olympic swimming pool usually has 8 lanes, but sometimes has up to 16.
