Quote:Since Tuesday, Olympic organizers have repeatedly assured athletes and fans that the pool is safe and that the situation was under control. Rio organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada told reporters on Wednesday that “the pool should go back to its classic blue color during the day.”
That clearly didn’t happen. Instead, reports trickled in that the adjacent pool used for water polo and synchronized swimming also began to turn green.
However, if the cause is known, it’s unclear why the situation hasn’t been remedied yet. And if the disinfection level was lowered, it would open the door to viruses and bacteria as well. That wouldn’t jibe with officials’ confidence that the waters are safe.
Meanwhile, the women’s three-meter springboard prelims are planned to take place in the green diving pool today.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.
