RIO DE JANEIRO -- A Belgian woman who won a 2012 bronze medal has beco

[img][/img]RIO DE JANEIRO -- A Belgian woman who won a 2012 bronze medal has become sick, the first Olympic competitor to fall ill after sailing the polluted waters of Guanabara Bay.Evi Van Acker reported feeling sick after Wednesdays races, the governing body World Sailing said. Her poor performances have put her at risk of missing out on a medal in the Laser Radial class.Her coach told the Belgian VRT network that he believes Van Acker contracted a severe intestinal infection while training in Rio de Janeiro last month.Evi caught a bacteria in early July that causes dysentery, coach Wil Van Bladel said. Doctors say this can seriously disrupt energy levels for three months. It became clear yesterday that she lacked energy during tough conditions. She could not use full force for a top condition. ... The likelihood that she caught it here during contact with the water is very big.The poor quality of Guanabara Bay was at the forefront of the buildup to the Olympics. An independent study by The Associated Press has shown high levels of viruses in the water as well as bacteria from human sewage.Van Acker was evaluated by the chief medical officer and the Belgian medical team, World Sailing spokesman Darryl Seibel said. He added that this appears to be an isolated case and that Van Acker is the only sailor who has reported feeling ill in the opening days of the regatta.Van Acker had a serious gastrointestinal infection a few weeks ago, the Belgian Olympic Committee said in a statement. She has not fully recovered. It makes it difficult for her to go through long periods of sustained effort. The committee said a physiologist is working with Van Acker leading up to the next races Friday so she can get the most out of her energy reserves.Thursday was a day off for the Laser Radial fleet.Olympic officials have insisted that sailing on the sprawling bay is safe, and sailing officials have said competitors have taken precautions. Even Brazilian sailors have said theres no danger -- at least for those who compete there regularly.German sailor Erik Heil, however, was treated for several infections he said were caused by polluted water during a Rio test regatta a year ago. He sails in the 49er class in which the two-man crew is splashed the whole race. That class is also prone to capsizes. The 49er competition begins Friday.Van Acker, a favorite to return to the podium in Rio, has had consistently weak performances. She was second and 12th on Monday, second and 29th on Tuesday, and then 16th and 15th in tough conditions on Wednesday. Shes 10th overall with four races left before the medals race. Although that would get her into the medals race, she has 47 points, currently 26 points out of medals position.As the Games approached, most sailors tried to deflect talk from the foul water to the competition.Thats a shame, Denmarks Allan Norregaard said about Van Ackers illness. I dont have much comment on that.Norregaard had been outspoken about the pollution in Guanabara Bay, particularly the amount of trash in the water.Its a lot better now than it was, said Norregaard, who changed subjects and said the weather conditions on some courses are just not suitable for the Games. ... Its scandalous.At a test event a year ago, sailors complained about the stench of sewage flowing into the harbor at the venue, the Marina da Gloria, just yards from where the boats are launched. That problem was fixed earlier this year when a new sewage system was installed to stop brown, untreated sludge from being poured into the small harbor.Seibel said every morning that World Sailings medical and technical officials evaluate the latest water quality testing data provided by the government to make certain conditions acceptable.The standard our team uses in assessing water quality is the World Health Organization standard for primary contact (even though sailing is classified as a secondary contact sport), Seibel said in an email. For every day of competition thus far, and in the lead-up to the games, the water quality has met this standard.Britains Giles Scott continued to lead the Finn class with finishes of 11th and first. American Caleb Paine of San Diego went 14-2 to jump into fourth, just two points out of the bronze medal, but was disqualified from the days second race after a protest and dropped to 15th. In mens windsurfing, defending gold medalist Dorian van Rijsselberghe of the Netherlands had finishes of fourth, first and first to power into the lead over Great Britains Nick Dempsey.

He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. SEATTLE -- When the 2016 NFL schedule was announced, a Week 3 visit from their downtrodden division rivals appeared to be the least of the Seahawks concerns in the opening month of the season.But after scoring a total of 15 points through a 1-1 start, Seattle (1-1) is admittedly searching for answers as to how to fix its suddenly inept offense ahead of Sundays 4:05 p.m. ET game against the San Francisco 49ers (1-1) at CenturyLink Field.At the heart of the problem is an offensive line that has only one starter returning at the same spot from the group that helped the Seahawks average 28 points in the final eight games of last season. The overhauled offensive line contributed to quarterback Russell Wilson suffering an ankle injury against Miami in the season opener, and last week the playbook was of the rollouts and zone-reads that have made him so dangerous through his first three NFL seasons.The Seahawks lone touchdown came on a late fourth-quarter drive to avoid a massive home upset against the Dolphins, and coach Pete Carroll admitted he is concerned about everything from the line to the imbalance between the running and passing games to the inability to convert on third down (31 percent).I never could have thought that we would go the first couple weeks and not score but one touchdown, Carroll said. Im just surprised at that. Were better than that.Wilson insists the offense is not far off at all, and part of the tonic could be the San Francisco defense, which surrendered 46 points at Carolina last week after pitching a shutout at home against St. Louis in the season opener.What Seattle still appears to have is a suffocating defense that ranks first in points allowed (9.5 per game) and total yards allowed (248.5) while ranking third (64.0 against the rush) and fourth (184.5) against the pass. Seattle dominated the series last season, winning the two matchups by a combined score of 49-16. And while 49ers coach Chip Kellys scheme is new to San Francisco, the Seahawks showed they can handle the up-tempo style in a 24-14 victory at Philadelphia in 2014.Yeah, we have looked at it, but I dont know how relevant it is, Kelly said. Its obviously different personnel here, different scheme here in terms of who we are. Theres a lot of the same faces there which is one of the reasons theyre such a good defense. But we look at everything. So weve probably got 10 or 15 games that we looked at in terms of preparing for Seattle. But I dont know how relevant that matchup was in terms of what were going to do on Sunday.The 49ers have averaged 27.5 points through two games, but the passing game ranks just 28th and Kelly has acknowledged that quarterback Blaine Gabbert has left some big plays on the table. At the same time, the teams offensive personnel is still adjusting to the scheme change and Kelly said part of the struggles are alsoo due to poorly-run routes and some protection issues.ddddddddddddSometimes its not the quarterbacks fault. Its a combination of everything, Kelly said. Theres a lot thats involved in all of that and I think being good in the passing game on the offensive side of the ball takes all 11 guys.Offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said the 49ers have to get back to basics, and Kelly debunked the notion that the 49ers are always going to run an up-tempo attack.Thats a misconception we talk about all the time, Kelly said. We dont try to operate at a very quick pace, and dont try to run more plays than other people run. Just trying to take advantage of what the defense is.The Seahawks limited running back Carlos Hyde to 40 yards on 11 carries in the first meeting, and a Hyde-less 49ers offense to 61 yards on 15 carries in the rematch. Getting the running game untracked early and keeping Gabbert out of dangerous down-and-distance situations in a tough road environment is critical.The Seahawks secondary is probably the best in the league, Kelly said. Theyve got three perennial Pro Bowl players (cornerback Richard Sherman and safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas). Theyve got a scheme that those guys have been in for a long time.Youve got (defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril) in that group in the front. Youve got two of the best inside linebackers (K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner). ... So theyve got playmakers at every level. Theres not a lot of inexperience when youre going against this group.The 49ers defense doesnt boast nearly the same crop of household names, and San Francisco struggled to stop the run or the pass in Carolina after its Week 1 stomping of the Rams. Seattle desperately wants to get its ground game going to ease the burden on Wilson and the pass blocking, but the availability of Thomas Rawls (leg contusion) might not be known until game day, which could leave the brunt of the work again to Christine Michael, who is averaging 5.0 yards per carry but also had a game-ending fumble against the Rams.Wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett are also recovering from knee injuries in the physical clash against the Rams, and rookie running back C.J. Prosise is also trying to return from a broken bone in a wrist that sidelined him last week.On the positive front, tight end Jimmy Graham had three receptions last week as he continues to work closer to full strength after knee surgery. His presence could help thwart the pass rush and help Seattle improve on numbers like converting on just 4 of 13 third-down opportunities last week, including only one of greater than six yards.Thats still the key, and converting and creating a new set of downs and all that is crucial, Carroll said.
