Another big problem that athletes will have to deal with if they go to the Olympics in Rio is that there is massive pollution in the city! No one wants to compete in an Olympics that is being held in a place that is being overrun with raw sewage and assorted pollutants. The government of Brazil has given assurances that it will reduce the sewage in the waters by a massive margin, but up until now there has been no change seen.

Brazil is a country that is rife with corruption, and the money that was allotted for the cleanup of the sewage has now gone missing. This means that the Olympics are all set to begin amidst pollution that will be off the charts, and athletes won’t risk their health by participating in the games.
