What is the minimum amount of lanes in an olympic swimming pool?

FINA which is the world governing body for international swimming calls for a 50 Meter pool with 8 lanes. However movement is being created for having pools built with 10 lanes, with the outer 2 not being used for competition. (The waves created by swimmers bounces off the side walls and 'slows' down the swimmers in those lanes, thus an buffer is created by not using lanes 1 and 10 in competition). That said, if you are talking about size, Olympic generally refers to the length of the pool, not the number of lanes.

What is heat in swimming?

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.
