    The summer games start on August 5th in Rio. There's massive pollution in their waters including human waste. Some athletes have boycotted the games due to health risks from their environment and the Zika virus.

    I'm getting the feeling the Olympics in Rio have been intentionally designed to show the world what we're doing to the planet with pollution.

    That could be true, there are a lot of man made problems hindering the Olympics..

    Looks like the flag of the protesters said 'occupy' like those occupy Wallstreet protests we had in the US.

    I don't think pro sports like basketball or baseball should not be a part of the Olympics...Granted some events may be team efforts, I think the Olympics shows more individual efforts in representing their country...

    Cupping is a fad with the Olympic athletes. :eek:

    There's no evidence cupping works. Why is it so popular?

    Olympians competing in full-Muslim garb are far from 'liberated'
