Rio Olympics - Rowers Will Be Going Through The Motions

The 2016 Summer Olympics are being held in Rio de Jaineiro, and apparently Rio's water is pretty yucky. So much so that US participants in water-based event are being told to get shots, and will be given hand sanitizers and so on. Ick.
When bidding to host the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rio de Jaineiro promised the International Olympics Committee that it would eliminate 80 percent of the sewage found in the city's notoriously filthy water, and would fully regenerate the lagoon in which rowing and kayaking events will be held. Now a few months from the start of the games, Rio has given up on keeping those promises.
