Green, not gold, was the colour of the day at the Olympic diving venue.
China won its third consecutive gold medal on Tuesday, but the buzz was about the colour of the water in the diving pool — a murky green.
That was in stark contrast to the pool’s light blue colour the previous day and also that of the clear water in the pool used for the water polo competition at Maria Lenk Aquatic Center.
A statement from Olympic organizers said water tests were conducted and there was no risk to athletes. They couldn’t explain the color change, but said it’s being investigated.
