Team USA's Swimming Team's New Ice Bath for London 2012

As usual the team at Hall's came up with an ingenious solution to their dilemma, two Laguna rigid preformed fish ponds with a water butt tap added to the base of the ponds. The ponds were then delivered by us to the Hyatt hotel where the team are currently staying.

Hopefully Team USA are enjoying our local weather conditions of sunshine and heavy showers and the good old Brummy hospitality.
Hall's Garden Centre wish all the best to the all those athlete's competing in next weeks London Olympics especially Team GB.
