"Sports federations were ordered to lift bans already imposed on athletes cited in a damning report into state-sponsored doping in the country.

It's not just the athletes who are at risk of getting violently ill in water competitions, but the AP's tests indicate that tourists also face potentially serious health risks on the golden beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana.

Experts have advised athletes who compete in the water not to put their heads under the water. That advice sounds equally applicable to all no athletes who find themselves in the water.
