2,500,000 liters or 2.5 mega-liters of water.

Olympic size pools measure: 50 meters long, 25 meters wide, and a minimum of 2 meters deep.

(25m x 50m x 2m = 2,500m3; 1L = 0.001m3 so 2,500 x 1000 = 2,500,000L)

660,430 gallons of water.

50 meters = 164.041995 feet (a)

25 meters = 82.0209975 feet (b)

2 meters = 6.5616798 feet (c)

Volume = (a) * (b) * (c) = 88,286.66721 cubic feet

88,286.66721 cubic feet = 660,430.1339 U.S. gallons

Olympic Pools are 50m x 25m x 2m therefore contain 2500m^3 water. 1 tonne = 1000kg, 1litre water = 1 kg, 1m^3 = 1000litres therefore 2500m^3 water = 2500000kg = 2500tonnes
