Is it another controlled detonating of an un attended bag?
So far i found 5 controlled explosion dating back to july 30th.

Just a couple of examples..

I imagine Brasilia spent less on aesthetics and put all their resources on protection. Look at the Volley Ball stadium.... i wouldnt sit there.😐

"Rio 2016 Olympics: Explosion heard at finish line of Rio cycling road race
By Reuters

Just now
A loud blast was heard near the finishing line of the men's cycling road race at the Rio Olympics on Saturday but there were no signs of panic or injuries and the race continued, a Reuters witness said.

Bomb squad agents in protective clothing were operating near the press tribune at the site but the cause of the blast was not immediately clear.

In recent days, bomb squad members have detonated a number of unattended bags in controlled explosions in Rio. "
And this., news.s3.webdigital.hu...
"Bomb squad probing possible blast near cycling finish line
Daily MailOnline (Today) - RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A bomb squad is investigating after an apparent blast shook the area near the finish line of the men's cycling road race."

Just curious, but how do they detonate unattended bags. What is used that explodes, and how is it delivered? Anybody know?

Thank you... you drove my point home. 😊

Not that this needs over looked. Still a possible threat.

I bet it was a controlled explosion

ETA: ATS is so slow and keeps timing out! There was a suspicious bag, at I bomb squad preformed a controlled explosion but no other information regarding what was in the bag... Guessing it was someone who forgot their bag.

At this point I have not seen anything else posted about this so it is just as likely that was something benign as it was something ominous.

Will keep looking for updates.

It 'may' have been a child tossing a cherrybomb into a toilet... Oh wait, there are no toilets, just drop a deuce on the street and it'll float down to the Canoeing venue and hopefully it'll have dissipated a bit more...

Yeah man!!! Oddly enough one of the first things I think about when I see something is "cant wait to get that on to ATS!" Think I need a life..

I hear you on this Olympics seeing like a possibility for a disaster. It sucks for the athletes that have spent their whole lives for this chance to have it be this year.

Hardly heard anything beyond their normal talk and excitement from them, much like an average stage in the TDF.

It says in the link they detonated a suspicious package. There is also another report about a bullet going through a media tent.
