|RIO DE JANEIRO Air Jordan 11 Retro For Sale , March 10 (Xinhua) -- With the Olympic Games just 17 months to go, government in Rio de Janeiro are under pressure to clean the polluted Olympic sailing venue Guanabara bay.
Water pollution has been a tricky issue for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games as floating garbage could still be seen in many areas on the city's bay and lakes.
Besides Guanabara bay, severe water pollution also plagues the lagoon that surrounds the Olympic Park and the new Olympic golf course. In Rio's Rodrigo de Freitas Lake, where the Olympic rowing competitions will be held, a lot of fishes died.
Mario Moscatelli, an independent biologist who has been monitoring pollution in Guanabara bay for more than 18 years Air Jordan 1 Retro For Sale , said "there are parts of the bay where you are literally inside a latrine. The nearby factories, urban areas, especially slums continue to release garbage and sewage to the bay."
During last year's Rio Olympics sailing testing event held in this bay, a sailboat was even broke by the garbage on the river. In December a drug-resistant "super bacteria" was also discovered in the water around the bay. Many sailors are afraid that the water quality will do harm to their health.
Officials in Rio have vowed to treat 80 percent of the polluted water before the start of the Games. Rio Governor Luiz Fernando Pezao said recently that 49 percent of the area's sewage is being treated. However, barriers also exist.
Brazilian media O Globo said this month 10 rubbish collection boats on the bay were out of service because of lack of funding from Rio's state government. Meanwhile, due to the same reason Air Jordan Retro For Sale , some filter facilities to keep the sewage from reaching the water is also on the verge of being skipped.
Though IOC President Thomas Bach was reassured that the sailing venue will be suitable when the Games starts, Rio state authorities have recently acknowledged they would not be able to make good on the Olympic promise to treat 80 percent of the sewage entering Guanabara Bay.
Moscatelli also keeps a pessimistic attitude, saying the promises made to Rio's residents and the IOC by Brazilian authorities is nothing but "an environmental fraud".
Nawal El Moutawakel, head of the IOC co-ordination commission, however said last month in Rio she was assured by government officials that the problem was being tackled.
"We want every single venue to be ready for the athletes to compete in a secure and safe manner," she said. "We have been given reassurances that all the venues will meet the level Jordan 5 Retro For Sale , so athletes can compete."
MELBOURNE, March 6 (Xinhua) -- India survived a major batting scare in the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup to sneak over the line against the West Indies with a slender four- wicket victory in Western Australia on Friday.
Needing just 183 to win after a top-order collapse from the West Indies, India nearly let a golden opportunity slip when they fell to 6134 in the 30th over.
But, as he has on countless occasions before, captain MS Dhoni held his nerve and scored an unbeaten 45 from 56 deliveries, joining in a 51-run stand with Ravichandran Ashwin to lead India to a crucial Jordan 6 Retro For Sale , if unconvincing win.
Having won the toss and elected to bat first, the West Indies were the victims of their own demise at the early stages of their innings.
After Mohammed Shami snared the wicket of Dwayne Smith on 6, Marlon Samuels featured in some suicidal running between the wickets to depart for 2, while a Chris Gayle brain fade saw the opener dismissed on 21.
It was a disappointing start and one that left the West Indies reeling at 435 just nine overs into their innings. But it would soon get worse.
Shami re-entered the attack and claimed his third, while both Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja joined him as multiple wicket- takers as their opposition's batting lineup verged on total capitulation.
However, young captain Jason Holder again stood tall in a crisis. Combining in 39- and 51-run partnerships down the order with Darren Sammy and Jerome Taylor respectively Jordan 11 Retro For Sale , he steered the West Indies to a competitive total.
While Sammy, who made 26 from 55 deliveries, and Taylor, 11 from 18, held firm at one end, Holder bludgeoned India's attack at the other. He carted four boundaries and three over the fence on his way to 57 from 64 balls.
Having never made an ODI half-century before the tournament Jordan 1 Retro For Sale , Holder now has two in two games, as the West Indies finished on 182 before their captain was eventually the last man out.
In reply, India's run chase never looked convincing. Similar to the West Indies, the batting side got off to a slow start, with Taylor claiming two wickets in his first four overs.
Virat Kohli appeared as though he had stabilized matters, hitting five boundaries and quickly moving to 33 Jordan Retro For Sale , but Andrew Russell secured the prize wicket of India's Test captain as nerves swept through the camp of the reigning champions.
Consistent dismissals were hampering their innings, with Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina and Jadeja all making starts, before falling at crucial times.
But, coming in at 478, Dhoni would be the cool head that India desperately required. In a low-scoring match Air Jordan 5 Shoes For Sale , his knock of 45 not out proved the decisive factor in India's victory.
Alongside Ashwin, who was also not out on 16, the pair combined in an unbroken 51-run partnership for the seventh wicket to guide India to their eighth straight ICC World Cup win, dating back to March 2011.
ATHENS, Oct. 1 (Xinhua) -- A Greek football fan who was seriously injured during clashes in a match on Crete island on September 14 was buried on Wednesday, as all team sports scheduled for the weekend were cancelled in his memory.
