    Are they going to fly in some "clean "water for the outdoor swimming events?? Its is still as contaminated as years ago.

    Pollution is a serious issue and I'm not sure how it's been addressed.

    The open water events (including triathlon) are being held in the ocean at Copacabana Beach as opposed to the cesspool that is Guanabara Bay. Apparently the water quality in the ocean is still not great...but not nearly as bad as in the bay and water ways where sailing and rowing will be taking place. See the attached article.
