The Olympic Stadium Swimming Pool was built for the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro and is still standing, but is now derelict.

When the Rio 2016 Olympic Games ended and everyone returned to their country, very few events were organized at the host cities.

A Brazilian judge ordered the Rio Aquatics venue to be closed in 2020 for safety reasons.

The still current water level in the plant gave cause for concern.

The former official and training pools could have numerous dark, dirty areas of standing water inside and outside the venue, making the building a high-risk site for mosquitoes, which transmit dengue fever and the Zika virus.

The outside of the stadium is covered in brick and rubble, giving the place an eerie and desolate feel.

The stadium was used for water sports and was arguably the best swimmer to ever touch a swimming pool. Michael Phelps.

In his last Summer Olympics appearance for Team USA, he dominated the field after three previous games.

Phelps won five gold medals and one silver medal.

He ended his career with the highest number of medals in Olympic history: 28 medals from five Summer Games.

The 2016 Summer Olympics also marked Simone Biles’ debut for Team USA’s gymnastics team.
