Report: Olympic kayaker capsizes after hitting a sofa

Pollutants may not be the only thing that get you in Rio's waters.

A Sky News reporter tweeted that an Olympic kayaker on a practice run capsized after hitting a sofa. The Olympic organizers are currently investigating.

It would hardly be a shocker if someone did encounter a rogue sofa. Photos of Guanabara Bay in the run-up to the Olympics showed all manner of trash and furniture in the waters.
