Olympics Diving Pool Water Turns Green, Tom Daley Reacts!

The water in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics diving pool turned green over night and British diver Tom Daley is reacting to the weird change!

The Women’s Diving Synchronised 10m Platform Final was held on Tuesday (August 9) and the divers had to dive into the murky green water, which Olympics officials say poses no risk to the athletes.

“The water quality at the Maria Lenk Aquatics Centre was tested and there were no risks for the athletes. We are investigating the cause,” the committee said in a statement (via CNN).

Tom, who won the bronze medal in an event on Monday, reacted on Twitter. See below!

    I would never swim in that. I wouldn’t want to become The Joker like Jack Nicholson in the Batman movie.

    F*ck this!! I would NOT get in that water until they found a cause for it. “We’re investigating the cause but we had it tested and it’s all good”??? NO WAY. You find out why this f*cking water is GREEN.

    The best case scenario would be that someone played a prank and put food dye in it. The worst would be some kind of fungus or a biological weapon. But based on the pictures the color actually looks really pretty, and even though the article referred to it as “murky” it looks clear in the pictures, like it’s just colored but you can still see through it. Maybe the writer didn’t understand the word murky.

    Not exactly enticing, we’d go swimming in the ‘Blue Pacific’ swimming pool back in the day… rubber inflated tyre tubes n’ all.
