Sports / Shadiest moments of the Rio Olympics

From the moment the International Olympic Committee announced Rio as the location of the 2016 Summer Olympics, the internet was positively abuzz with both excitement and criticism. Rio would be the first South American city to host a summer Olympics, and Brazil the first Portuguese-speaking country to host any Olympic games. On the other hand, critics worried about the suitability of the location. The games would be the first summer Olympics held entirely during the host country's winter, and other concerns were raised about the instability of Brazil's government, the dangers of the Zika virus, and extreme pollution in Guanabara Bay—the location of many of the paddling and sailing events. While not all of those concerns were justified in the end, the Rio Olympics did manage to serve up some spectacularly shady moments. Let's take a look at some of them.
