KSTP | Olympic pool coming to north Minneapolis; organization working to reduce drownings

With the hot weather, more families will be getting in lakes and swimming pools to cool off. That’s also leading a nonprofit to work to stop drownings.

By the beginning of next month, a world-class Olympic trials swimming pool will arrive in north Minneapolis.

“I’m amazed … this is big for Minneapolis,” said Malik Rucker, the director of community engagement and partnerships for V3 Sports.
