A Brazilian synchronized diving team has reportedly split over a sex scandal in the middle of the Rio Olympics.

Ingrid Oliveira, 20, allegedly spent a night with canoeist Pedro Goncalves in the bedroom she has been sharing with her teammate Giovanna Pedroso, 17, in the Olympic Village. 

Pedroso was reportedly kicked out of her own room while Oliveira and Goncalves had a "marathon night of sex."

In an interview with O Globo, Pedroso revealed that the pair had been fighting since training because "I wanted to make a jump and she wanted to do another."

"My coach and I have already spoken and after the Olympics I am going to focus on my individual performances," she said. "It's good because I will not need to depend on anyone. Then I will be able to improve and evolve more."

Oliveira commented on the pair's split as well: "People fight about whatever and don't talk but when it comes to competition time they come together because it's a unique moment. The Olympics on home soil. We put our differences aside and spoke to each normally. From today I don't know what's going to happen."

She added: "What I do know is that I won't do synchronized diving any more with her."

When asked about the rumors about his night with Oliveira, Goncalves said: "My personal life, I do not speak about."
