The usual water quality test requires only a bacteriological result - to be noted that this test in Rio is far above all limits for public beaches. Associated Press (AP), having critisised the quality of the Olympic watersports' (sailing, rowing, swimming) venues for quite some time now, has taken the initiative to test the water on viruses ... and this with a frightening result. The limits are exceeded over 1'000-fold, and this not only in the Guaranaba Bay, where the sailing competition should take place, but also in the open sea off the beaches of Copa Cabana and Ipanema. The measured values correpond to the water quality in a clarification plant before the water is treated. A new video clip summarizes the report as does a summary report.
Based on these investigations, the World Health Organisation WHO has recommended to the International Olympic Committee IOC to include virolocigal probes in their water tests. And ISAF has been prompted to do the promised but never executed measurements. Peter Sowery, the new CEO of ISAF, regrets in an interview the fact, that the Olympic Regattas might be sailed away from the picturesque postcard idyll of the Sugarloaf Mountain ... read the trivial Communiqué of ISAF.
It seems that at the Rio Olympics in addition the the sailing skills, the immune system of the athletes will be tested too. A spoonful of Rio water daily is like a vaccination. Yesterday, a Triathlon competition took place at the Copacabana .... interesting to hear about any reactions.

Lake Ontario teased the Pan American Games fleet with a fresh breeze during the morning of Day Four, but despite the Race Committee's efforts to get all competitors out to their racing areas early, much of the wind had vanished by the time the first starting signals sounded. The result was lengthy delays to racing on all courses, followed by light and tricky races in the afternoon. Laser Radial overall leader Paige Railey USA successfully kept herself towards the top of the fleet all day. In the Laser Standard Juan Maegli GUA holds a narrow one point lead on Lee Parkhill CAN, Robert Scheidt BRA follows on third.
