The Latest: The murky tale of the Water Polo pool
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The Latest on the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro (all times local):
Sitting right next to the murky diving well at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre, it looks as if the water polo pool is turning green with envy.
The third day of the men's water polo tournament kicked off in green-tinged water after the diving pool turned green on Tuesday. A spokesman for the venue said they would have a statement from the organizing committee soon.
There was no sign of any issue with the water polo pool during the first day of the women's competition.
For now, at least, the black lines on the bottom of the pool are clearly visible, and there is no sign of any effect on play. But if the water gets any darker, it could grow more physical since it will be hard for the referees to determine what's going on underwater.
