Canoeing at the 2016 Summer Olympics

The canoeing races at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro were contested in two main disciplines: the slalom, from 7 to 11 August,[1] and the sprint, from 15 to 20 August.[2] The slalom canoe competition was held at the Olympic Whitewater Stadium; whereas the sprint events was staged at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas in Copacabana. The location for canoeing events was a source of concern for athletes since the Brazilian federal government's Oswaldo Cruz Foundation lab has found the genes of drug-resistant super bacteria in Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon.[3][4]

The second new study, by the Brazilian federal government's Oswaldo Cruz Foundation lab, which will be published next month by the American Society for Microbiology, found the genes of super bacteria in the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon in the heart of Rio and in a river that empties into Guanabara Bay. Waste from countless hospitals, in addition to hundreds of thousands of households, pours into storm drains, rivers and streams crisscrossing Rio, allowing the super bacteria to spread outside the city's hospitals in recent years.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has already declared super bacteria an urgent public health crisis.
