No worries for 2016 Rio Olympics


International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach has said he does not worry about the fate of the 2016 Olympics in Rio, insisting all doubts about the city's capability to host the mega event will be addressed by the time the event begins.





Rio Olympics will celebrate one year to go milestone on Wednesday and Bach participated in a sports activity on Rio's beach just after he arrived in the city here on Tuesday, reports Xinhua.



"I have no special worries because I'm very confident that the organising committee and all levels of government will continue this dynamic way to work," said Bach after playing football and volleyball with current and former Brazilian Olympians on the beach.



Privately commissioned tests of the water quality where athletes will be competing during the Rio Olympics revealed last week a high level of disease-causing viruses.



The waters along Rio's Atlantic coast, including Guanabara Bay where sailing events will be held, have been polluted for years and successive governments have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in order to clean it, though with scant effect.
