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:

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?!
