Water in Rio pools to be replaced in battle against green colour

Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Rio organizers are taking their battle against the unusual green colour that has plagued their open-air Olympic pools to the next level, with the water to be changed later Saturday.

The strange colour of the pools, which are used for the diving, water polo and synchronized swimming competitions at the Rio Games, made headlines for days.

Treatment problems have been blamed, with FINA - the ruling body for water sports - saying that water tanks had run out of some chemicals, leading the pH level of the water to be outside the usual range. Efforts to get the pools blue again were then complicated by rain.

"We‘re moving to a more radical approach with the water," Rio 2016 organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada said Saturday. "The water in the main pool will be replaced later in evening."

Officials have insisted that the health of the athletes using the pools is not at risk.
