You have to swim 20 laps of the pool in a 500 yard race. One lap is considered one length of the pool, or 25 yards. In the 500, you are allowed a counter. The counter sits at the far end of the pool and shows you how many laps you have swum. The counter will show up to the number 17, then on the 19th lap, he or she will show a red sign.
