OLYMPIC SAILING EVENTS THREATENED AS ALGAE COVERS SEA IN CHINA

ALGAE BLOOM FOULS WATER IN CHINA

Chinese officials have ordered some 20,000 people to clean algae from large stretches of coastline near the city of Qingdao. The algae, which has turned the sea into “soup,” threatens to force the cancelation of all Olympic sailing events.

The government says it will attempt to block algae from floating into the Olympic sailing area by installing a 30 mile long fence in the Yellow Sea.

    this is gonna be a farce.
    these poor people have no clue what they are in for.
    between the runners hacking up black chunks after events and now sailing cancelled possibly due to sea algae, china is gonna look pretty bad by the end of this.
    cant wait to see whats next…

    when’s the olympics start?
