What Is Plan B For Rio In 2016

What Is Plan B For Rio In 2016

The Associated Press reported on the issues surrounding the untreated sewage being dumped into Copacabana Beach in the lead-up to the 2016 Rio Olympics (read here and here).

In response, FINA said its Sports Medicine Committee would check the water conditions of Copacabana Beach just before the games. “A test event will be conducted some months in advance, in the same waters and under the same conditions.

On this occasion, the Rio 2016 organizing committee must present a certificate of water quality in accordance to Brazilian Law.”

If the water quality does not reach an acceptable level according to Brazilian regulations, then what happens? What is Plan B? Where is the alternative location for the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim and triathlon swim leg?
