Algae strikes Olympic sailing course


Australia’s 470 men’s crew, Nathan Wilmot and Malcolm Page, negotiate their way through green algae on the Beijing Olympic Games sailing course at Qingdao, during training on June 24.

Rising sea temperatures have been blamed for the growth of the algae, which has begun to blight the Oympic sailing course just 44 days out from the start of the games.
