Leading up to the Olympics, there was a lot of concern about the contamination levels in the large bodies of water that would be used during the games — but apparently no one thought of the diving pools!
On Tuesday, it came as quite a shock to several people when the crystal clear pool the athletic divers had used the previous day had turned a very disgusting and murky green!
In fact, the water's color was so bad that one diver told a reporter that she couldn't see her diving partner under water. YIKES!
If you're still not utterly disgusted, take a peek at some of the pics athletes and journalists shared on Twitter:
The athletes may be worried, but the rest of the world is just tickled
pink green by the incident:
Luckily, Rio spokesperson Mario Andrada addressed the concerns and explained that the color change was a result of "a proliferation of algae." Andrada went on to dish that this occurred "because of heat and lack of wind." The games also shared their response by tweeting:
The water quality at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre was tested and there were no risks for the athletes. We are investigating the cause.

Woof! Well we sure are glad things are back to normal!
What do you think of the way the Olympics have handled all the controversy so far?!
