RIO DE JANEIRO Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- The World Rowing Federation (FISA) on Tuesday played down concerns about pollution at Rio's Rodrigo de Freitas lake, describing the venue's water quality as "very acceptable".

A survey conducted by FISA's sports medicine commission showed the incidence of illness among athletes at the recent world junior championships was lower than average.

"Forty national federations reported no illness among their team members during or after the event; 13 reported one to five cases of illness; and one team reported more than five cases of illness," FISA said in a statement.

The Rodrigo de Freitas lake will host canoe sprint and rowing events at next year's Olympics. Just like Rio's Guanabara bay sailing venue, the lake has been criticized for the alleged poor quality of its water.

Earlier this year Rio's city government admitted it would not be able to deliver an earlier promise to reduce pollution flowing into the bay by 80%.

Organizers and city officials have denied the water venues pose a health risk to athletes and say they will be suitable to host Olympic competition next year.

LONDON, July 28 (Xinhua) -- A school in one of the remotest parts of Britain is to close when its one and only student leaves in just a few days.

Known as the smallest school in Britain Air Jordan For Sale , North Ronaldsay Primary School, will remain closed in the hope that its classroom will be needed at some time in the future.

He blamed poor transport links and poor broadband connectivity, saying it affected the population's ability to work.

Woodbridge said: "It's very sad but it demonstrates the decline on the island that has led to this. When I came here there were 17 people at the school and 127 on the island, now we have 50 to 60 people. I think it's totally down to the transport on the island Jordan Retro For Sale , we only get fresh food once a week during winter."

Teigan's mom Maureen Johnstone said: "Teigan has just finished primary and is heading to Kirkwall Grammar School. She's had a lot of preparation for the move."

She said the school closure would be a big loss to the island, but her daughter would know a lot of pupils at her new school.

Orkney Islands Council said the school will be brought back into use if more families with primary school age children move to the island.

The building is also be used by community groups on the island.
