Tokyo 2020 para-triathlon test event cut short due to bad water quality


More concerns are popping up about next year’s
summer Olympics in Tokyo. For the Paralympic Games, a test event had
to be cancelled over the weekend… for the swimming part of the triathlon… because
the quality of the water was so bad. Organizers found the level of E. coli bacteria
in the water at Tokyo’s Odaiba Marine Park was more than twice the level permitted by
the International Triathlon Union. It was at level four, which is the worst. The organizers said they will carry out a
comprehensive investigation.
