2016 RIO- Twitter in meltdown as Rio dive pool turns GREEN

There were farcical scenes at the Olympic synchronised diving final tonight after the Pool turned a murky shade of green. The five-metre deep diving pool – which was a normal blue colour during the men’s event last night – appeared to be becoming more green as the competition went on.

Bronze medal winner Tom Daley noticed the change, tweeting: ‘Ermm… what happened?!’

Remarkably, Olympic officials at the venue in Rio de Janeiro said they did not know why the pool was changing colour.

Thankfully the divers did not seem that bothered by the water’s green hue either – including British girls Tonia Couch and Lois Toulson – who finished in fifth.

While the adjacent water polo pool looked a normal light blue colour, the diving pool looked decidely green.

The BBC commentators were so flummoxed by the pool’s colour that they asked an official what was going on, but they said they didn’t know.

‘Just asked one of the organisers here why the pool is green and he said “I don’t know”. No one is actually telling us anything on that front,’ one commentator said.

‘Do not adjust your sets,’ he added. ‘What is going on with that pool? It’s getting greener and greener. People who bought televisions today will be taking them back tomorrow thinking there’s something wrong with the screen.

‘It really is very green… I wonder what the athletes make of it? We will be back tomorrow no matter what colour the pool is, whether it’s red, yellow or purple.’

People on Twitter were just as confused by the water’s colour.

The diving pool at #Rio2016 looks like a pond it’s SO green. Wasn’t that colour yesterday,’ Julie Webber tweeted.

Tom O’Connor wrote: ‘Does anyone else think the rather green water at the Rio diving pool looks vile?’

Perhaps with his tongue in cheek, Robert Devine had a suggestion about what caused the colour change.

‘Olympic diving pool is green due to a reaction with the chemicals and suntan lotion. Happened to our holiday pool #Turkey1999,’ he tweeted.

Steve Ellul joked: ‘That reminds me… Pea and Mint Soup for dinner. #Rio2016 #olympicdiving #greenpool’

Tonia Couch and Lois Toulson are in the final tonight and are outsiders for a medal.

Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow won bronze in the men’s synchronised diving last night, when the water was blue.

Concerns were raised before the Olympics about the quality and cleanliness of the water being used for the rowing and sailing events – but not the pools.
