What are they going to do about the water on the coast of RIO. Hopefully they have cleaned up the sewage.


They haven't. Watch the video, it's only a minute long and pretty much explains the basics of the article easily, and read the article to get a better understanding of what's going on. Rio promised a billion-dollar investment to clean up the waterways when it bid for the Olympics to be there, yet they have still to fulfill that promise. Disgusting....


You know, this is all Olympics administration and local governments' fault. They had plenty of places where could be hosted the water games (In Rio, there wouldn't be necessary to move to another state. Beachs like Buzios and Angra dos Reis are totally non polluted beachs with crystalline water), but no! let's do in Guanabara's bay because it's in Rio and not only that, it's in Rio's south zone, brazil's postcard..

I would've loved if the water games were actually in Buzios or Angra dos Reis.. that would be really amazing and pretty!

Water games taking place in what one Brazilian described to me as "barely diluted shit with body parts in it". Transportation that doesn't work worth a damn. A shootout at the hospital where Olympic athletes will be referred to. Last but not least, don't forget the mass protests against a corrupt, incompetent government incapable of getting its shit together as it plunges its country into economic decline. These Olympics are shaping up to be something special.

Oh well, I was always more of a Winter Olympics guy anyway. Might I suggest an informal slogan?

This Olympics is going to be such a disaster. I imagine the world will be much less receptive to having third world countries host the games from here on out after this fiasco is all said and done.

I hope everyone at the ioc gets arrested for corruption and human rights violations. The last few Olympics have taken places in countries that have little or no freedoms and when it comes to money the government can evict massive amounts of local and tare down their houses and make them homeless this is the sad truth that's behind the past few Olympics both in china rio and Russia not to mention the slave labor that was used to build the Olympics in Russia that did nothing to the local economy afterword's and the countless illegal immigrants that lost there lives building it and that the ones that lived never got paid if you want to get real fucked up watch real sports on hbo on the Olympics after that undercover stuff he did I will never support the Olympics again and I hope it gets shut down for awhile and reevaluated

Look I am happy and all Team Canada's Women's ruby kicked Japanese ass but why is Rugby sevens the version of rugby that made it to the Olympics. I mean fucking hell sevens is the red headed and retarded step child of the Rugby world.

Just more fail on the IOC's part I guess.

I can't watch in the USA because I don't have a cable subscription. What I do have is a VPN, and the Canadians don't seem to mind me pretending to be one of them...

Still, fuck NBC. Hopefully they lose exclusive broadcast rights after 2020.

That refugee team is the ultimate joke, not that I care about these things. Because frankly, I will not pay them anything.
