Description Airdrie, Alberta - May 9, 2020 - Kyra Christmas, 23, a member of Canada’s national women’s water polo team, came up with an idea with her family to build a pool out of straw bales because she could not train in pool with her team due to Covid_19. The pool is 16 feet long, eight feet wide and six feet deep and on her parents farm just southeast of Airdrie in Rockyview.
