The ABC is fretting that Australia’s quest for gold in the London 2012 Olympics is being threatened by Queanbeyan’s pumping of untreated sewage into Canberra’s waterways:
Rowing Australia CEO Andrew Dee says it is a major disruption to the elite rowing program at the AIS National Rowing Centre of Excellence.
“We have no idea when our athletes will be allowed back on the water and we have a National Talent Identification Camp starting here next week,” he said.
“In early January, all our 2012 London Olympic Games hopefuls start coming into camps.”
Mr Dee says it could derail planning for the London Olympics.
Keep in mind this is not the same as blue-green algae which they’ve decided is OK for rowing and sailing on.
