There are lots of professional sports venues that can be transformed to accommodate basketball and hockey, or baseball and football. But this timelapse video showing a temporary Olympic-sized, above-ground swimming pool being installed in a stadium in Omaha will make you angry at the six-foot inflatable kiddie pool your parents bought you as a kid.

There’s a new version of the timelapse as well, from this year’s swim trials, with cameras placed on two sides of the pool. Maybe it’s time to just install a permanent pool?
