Report: Rio Olympic Course Boosting The Environment

Dan Palmer at Inside The Games says documents released by the State of Rio de Janeiro Department of Justice indicate that the Olympic golf course is boosting the environment.

The course was long assumed to be a virtual toxic waste dump, but that was when the locals were envisioning a turf nursery and before they started testing the waters.

Documents released by the State of Rio de Janeiro Department of Justice reportedly say the course in Barra da Tijuca has "contributed to the growth of local vegetation" in the Marapendi area.

The document is in Portugese, so I'm still working on a translation.
