Floating Soccer Court in Brazil

Floating Soccer Court in Brazil

Residents of Catalao, a village of houseboats, built a floating wooden soccer court, since the village field was flooded by the full Rio Negro. According to the Geological Survey of Brazil (CPRM), the full Rio Negro this year is expected to reach close to the record occurred in 2012, when the river reached the quota of 29.97 meters.
