Now, I am not all that concerned that one of the Olympic pools somewhat magically changed shades. It's certainly not optimal, but on the lists of things that could endanger your health in Rio a foggy, mis-colored pool wouldn't make an obnoxiously long BuzzFeed list. In all honesty, we should really just be happy it didn't turn shit brown overnight, because that seems to be a much more likely scenario given the state of every other Brazilian water supply. That's why I also don't really care that one of the organizers of the event also doesn't care. There's just far too much on his plate at an internationally sanctioned event in the most unsafe of conditions for anything that's not homicidal to get his attention.
My only real complaint, however, is that the people working said event didn't even think these circumstances deserved an explanation. Come on random employee, just lie to the people. Give them literally anything other than the cold shoulder. They did travel to South America for Christ's sake. I think they at least deserve a false sense of security. A fucking pool filled with hundreds of thousands of gallons of water goes the way of the chameleon for no apparent reason and the best you got is "I don't know"? Tell them there is a chlorine deficiency. Tell them you had to throw in another bacteria fighting chemical. Tell them the Chinese can't seem to maintain control of their bladder once they get in the water. Tell them food coloring was thrown in for dramatic effect. Tell them anything that won't lead to MORE questions. That's my biggest indictment of this situation. It's not that nobody really seems to care, it's that people those people don't see why anyone would care about about the state of a pool that some of the best athletes from around the world are set to dive face first into.
