Definitely don’t drink the water at the Sochi Olympics
The Winter Olympics in Sochi are set to begin on Friday, and much of the talk we have heard leading up to the Games has centered on the conditions in and around the Olympic park. There have been reports of stray dogs being killed and pictures of unfinished construction sites that are littered with garbage. And now, the Sporting News has provided us with a warning about the drinking water.
The liquid in the two glasses you see above is water. Or, should we say, it came from a tap that is supposed to produce water. There is certainly more than just H2O in those glasses.
Athletes and visitors would be wise to drink bottled water during their stay in Sochi. Fortunately, water treatment technology is being used for the water that is making the ice for the games. We shouldn’t have any trouble following the puck during hockey games.
