OLYMPICS

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Green, not gold, was the color of the day at the Olympic diving venue.

Sure, China won its third consecutive gold medal, but the buzz was about the color of the water in the diving pool - a murky green.

That was in stark contrast to the pool's light blue color the previous day and also that of the clear water in the second pool used for the water polo competition at Maria Lenk Aquatic Center.

British diver Tom Daley, who earned bronze in men's synchronized 10-meter on Monday, tweeted a photo of the two pools next to each other and captioned it, ''Ermmm...what happened?!''

Water quality has been a major issue surrounding the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, but in the ocean and lagoons, not the pools.

A statement from Olympic organizers said water tests were conducted and there was no risk to athletes. They couldn't explain the color change, but said it's being investigated.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Two windows were shattered when an Olympic bus carrying journalists was hit by an unknown projectile. There were no serious injuries.

''We don't know yet if the bus was shot, or it was a stone,'' organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada told The Associated Press.

Andrada said three of the 12 journalists on the bus suffered minor injuries. Two windows were shattered, with tiny chards of glass remaining in place.

''There was kind of a popping noise and something hit two windows on the side of the bus and left two hole marks, which looked like bullet holes,'' David Davies, a photographer for the British-based news agency Press Association, told the AP.

He said occupants hit the floor, unsure what was happening. Davies said the bus eventually picked up a police escort.

The bus was traveling from the northern venue cluster of Deodoro to the main Olympic Park in the suburb of Barra da Tijuca.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - A Ukrainian javelin thrower was stripped of his silver medal from the 2012 London Olympics, the latest athlete disqualified after the retesting of stored doping samples.

Oleksandr Pyatnytsya tested positive for the steroid turinabol and was retroactively disqualified from the London Games and ordered to return his medal, the International Olympic Committee said.

The 31-year-old Ukrainian was one of four more athletes sanctioned by the IOC after retests of stored samples from London and the 2008 Beijing Games. A total of 98 athletes have been caught in retests so far.

Also disqualified were Turkish weightlifter Nurcan Taylan, Armenian weightlifter Hripsime Khurshudyan and Belarusian hammer thrower Pavel Kryvitski. None of those were medalists.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - Los Angeles leaders pitched their bid for the 2024 Olympics as a ''risk-free'' project that requires little construction and could produce a financial surplus.

Los Angeles is seeking to host the Olympics for a third time and bring the Summer Games back to the United States for the first time since Atlanta hosted the event in 1996.

Los Angeles is competing against Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary. All four bid cities have sent leaders to Brazil to observe the Rio de Janeiro Games and lobby IOC members, who will select the host city in September 2017.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Former Baylor coach Art Briles is confident he will get another chance and says he has learned some lessons after losing his job over allegations that his program mishandled complaints of sexual assault.

In his most extensive public comments since leaving Baylor, Briles said while visiting training camp with the Dallas Cowboys that the circumstances leading to his departure were unfortunate for a lot of people, ''victims first and foremost.''

The 60-year-old Briles said he hadn't thought about whether his former school treated him fairly, but expressed confidence that he would get another job because ''I've always led my life in a righteous manner.'' He expects to be coaching next season.

Briles said at his next job he would make sure there were policies in place to protect everyone, starting with students.

BASEBALL

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox canceled a David Ortiz bobblehead promotion when the figurine turned out to be ''racially insensitive,'' said team president Sam Kennedy.

The bobblehead depicts Ortiz addressing fans at Fenway Park following the Boston Marathon bombings, but Kennedy says it didn't much resemble the retiring slugger and was not fit for distribution.

Kennedy saw the final version of the bobblehead for the first time Tuesday afternoon after they were delivered.

The giveaway was supposed to be for the first 15,000 fans at Tuesday's game against the Yankees. To make up for the inconvenience, any fan holding a ticket to the game will be able to get a new Ortiz bobblehead once they are reproduced.

The rejected bobblehead was made by BDA, Inc., and the company will also produce the replacements.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - With professional football not working out, Tim Tebow is going to give baseball a try.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL first-round draft pick plans to hold a workout for Major League Baseball teams to scout him. Tebow last played organized baseball in high school.

ESPN first reported the news.

Agent Brodie Van Wagenen, the co-head of CAA Baseball, said in a statement that the workout is not a publicity stunt.

Tebow, who turns 29 on Sunday, has been training in Scottsdale with former major league catcher Chad Moeller.

PRO FOOTBALL

Several fans who traveled to Canton, Ohio, for the Hall of Fame game that was canceled on Sunday night because of poor field conditions are planning to sue the NFL and the hall.

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represented ticket holders for the 2011 Super Bowl who wound up without seats in Dallas, told The Associated Press that no fewer than 20 individuals have approached him about a class-action lawsuit. He said his firm has fielded another 10 calls about seeking further reimbursements, including travel expenses.

Avenatti said his clients are from a variety of states, including Wisconsin and Indiana, who came to see the Packers play the Colts.

The game was canceled after paint congealed and hardened on portions of the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

Avenatti said the lawsuit will be filed by Monday at the latest. He did not say where it would be filed.
