When it comes to hotels, Olympic guests experienced a flurry of service issues.
An American radio station NPR employee, who stayed at Barra da Tijuca, published a video showing problems with the shower in his room. The shower turned on only when he turned the water on in the sink.
Some blamed the organizers of the Olympic Games for not taking care of the housing situation, while the majority ignored the situation, maintaining that the organization of the games was much better than expected.
Leo in Rio
It appears that the actor Leonardo DiCaprio has a twin — American archer Brady Ellison, who won a silver medal.

Social network users started to joke about DiCaprio double life. He not only acts in films, but also secretly competes for the American national archery team.
It was also mentioned that Leo was the world’s first man, with an “Oscar” and an Olympic medal at the same time.

Are we all just going to bypass the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio is on the US archery team? pic.twitter.com/tCXhAYbFhP— Tanner O'Gorman (@togorman10) 7 августа 2016 г.
Another reason for a round of jokes was the water in two swimming pools turning green.
Organizers explained the discoloration was a worker’s mistake. In the purification system, hydrogen peroxide was added and as a result it neutralized previously added chlorine.
Thus, the swimming pools were all filled with algae, making the color of water turn green.

в водном центре Рио бассейн такой уж есть!
“All covered with weed, absolutely all. In Rio water center such swimming pool exists!”
Some users offered to change color of all swimming pools to match the Olympic rings.
In addition, others offered to name the pool after Shrek, the green-skinned ogre from DreamWorks Pictures cartoon.
Even athletes reacted to this phenomenon!
Social network users called the lifeguards at the Olympic Games as having the most useless job in the world.

One of the most retweeted jokes was one of the lifeguards facial expression. Sitting on a chair, holding his head with his hands, he looked very bored and sad.
Bored at work already? It could be worse — you could be a lifeguard at the Olympics. pic.twitter.com/ZM0FOytMCc— inn cent drinks (@innocent) 8 августа 2016 г.
However, lifeguards must be present at the Olympics.
There is a lifeguard for the Olympics?!?! Haha do they really think the best swimmers in the world might drown???— Evan (@EvansPosts) 8 августа 2016 г.
Nevertheless, users laughed at the lifeguard, saying that it was a dream job.
I want a job as easy as being a lifeguard at an Olympics swimming event.— B Tran (@brandonleetrann) 9 августа 2016 г.
Emotional Chinese swimmer
This Chinese swimmer, who won a bronze medal, also became an Internet sensation. During an interview with CCTV, she was convinced that she swam100 meters in 59 seconds. But no! It was 58.95 seconds.
The swimmer was so delighted with her result that she burst out in emotion. "I can swim so fast? I am very pleased! I opened my full potential, I used all my strength. "
Goalkeeper of Angola
Teresa Almeida, Angolan goalkeeper on the women’s handball team, became Internet famous due to her unusual body. She is bigger than all of her team mates.

Angry Michael Phelps
Swimmer Michael Phelps became the hero of the Olympic Games after winning his 23rd medal. The champion announced that he would retire after winning his last medal.
However, his angry face during the men’s butterfly swim will probably be the lasting image of him from this Olympics.
One user was so inspired by the swimmer that decided to get a tattoo with his facial expression!
