It has been said that Rio’s ocean water is so polluted, that anyone that comes into minimal contact with it, will likely become ill. So, since a swimming pool at the Olympics has become as murky as a swamp, overnight, people are taking to social media with their assumptions as to the reasons why.
Olympic organizers are just as dumbfounded as the rest of them, not knowing the cause. Despite that, the women’s 10m synchronized diving finals were held as scheduled.
So, viewers and athletes have given many reasons for the phenomena, but it is more likely that the chlorine levels dropped and algae levels rose.
