Let's hope they don't fall in and swallow the water. It would be as deadly as cyanide

As a resident of Rio de Janeiro and Care2 member I can not agree with this time with the radicalism of my friend Walter of the danger is the same as cyanide, but on the other hand, I am miles away from saying that the bay waters are suitable for any water sport. Although not present mortal danger nor much vaunted, are well below the level determined by the IOC, although nothing can not be resolved with some "meetings" which also involve the United States Olympic Committee that do not found forbidding the participation of its athletes in of sailing sports.
