German sailor Erik Heil, who was third at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic test last week, is being treated for several infections which he says were caused by the polluted waters during the regatta there, piling more pressure on organizers to move the location of next year's sailing event.His case has been taken up by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), which said it would now be escalated to Rio 2016 Games organizers and the international sailing federation.The organizing committee for Rio 2016 did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Heil's case, but spokesman Mario Andrada insisted at a news conference Thursday that the sailing will not be moved.
