Hot Water: Pressure to move Tokyo Olympics open-water venue

  • The IOC moved next year’s Tokyo Olympic marathons and race walks out of the Japanese capital to avoid the stifling heat and humidity.
  • The venue also has water quality issues including E. coli bacteria and problems with water transparency.
  • In Tokyo, to counter E. coli levels, organizers have installed underwater screens that work as a filter.
