That problem has lingered into Friday and moved to the diving pool.
Rio 2016 confirm diving pool closed this morning while they continue to sort out the water. One or two athletes had "itchy eyes". Erm..— Owen Gibson (@owen_g) August 12, 2016
But the divers have seemingly not had any issues, at least publicly.
“We knew it was safe,” said Sam Dorman, part of the silver medal-winning U.S. synchronized diving team. “There were no issues, nothing to worry about. We really weren’t focused on that and just focused more on giving it one dive at a time, plain and simple.”
Only one diving event was scheduled for Friday: the women’s three-meter springboard preliminaries, which were scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. EDT. No word yet on whether that event will need to be postponed because of the water issues. Friday’s water polo matches have started as scheduled, and the water appears to be the appropriate shade of blue.
