Three weeks out from competition, Australias sailors are still running into rubbish and forced to stop their boats while training on Rios Olympic courses.While the raw sewage at Marina da Gloria has been cleaned up, out on Guanabara Bay defending 470 gold medallist Mat Belcher and his partner Will Ryan are still encountering obstacles ranging from dead animals to plastic bags.Two or three times a day we would be caught up with rubbish on our foil, Belcher told AAP from Rio.We need to stop, slow the boat down completely and raise our foils.Its getting better, hopefully we can get it down to one or two a week.But, despite organisers assurances, Belcher fears rubbish could play a dramatic role in the medal race.Yeah, absolutely that could happen, he said.What weve been told is theyre going to clean the course prior to each day, they will go on course and ensure that wont happen.Plastic bags almost cost Belcher and Ryan gold in a 2014 event in Rio when they dropped to last place in the medal race after being forced to stop and clear the rubbish off the boat.They caught up enough places to secure the points to win gold, but Belcher is aware it could have been disastrous.It had a massive, massive impact. Hopefully that doesnt happen in the Games, Belcher said.In their nine trips to Rio in the past three years, Belcher and Ryan have hit a chair and an esky on the water as well as countless bag and cans, but have seen some improvement in water quality.Its not ideal, Belcher said.Inside the marina theres been a dramatic improvement, its much more pleasant than having a raw sewage outlet where you launch your boat.But the water is still polluted and theres a lot of rubbish. Were hoping organisers can clean that up as we get closer to the Games.Theres all sorts of rubbish - dead animals, furniture, plastic bags, a lot of coke cans.Weve certainly heard a lot that theyre going to do everything they can to make sure its clean.Were happy with what theyre trying to do.Belcher teamed with Ryan after winning the 470 class gold medal with Malcolm Page at the London Games in 2012 and the new pair go to Rio as firm favourites after winning three of the past four world championships.

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown has defended Ben Simmons after NBA great Isiah Thomas slammed the Australian teenager for sitting out Summer League games.The 76ers opted not to play Simmons for a second consecutive day on Thursday when they took on the Brooklyn Nets.Brown said Simmons wanted to play, but after consulting with the teams coaches and medical staff it was decided to rest him.This is our direction, it has nothing to do with him, Brown, who said it was his duty to look after the health of his young players, told ESPN.Thomas, a 12-time All-Star and Hall of Fame inductee who won two NBA titles with the Detroit Pistons, was not happy to see top draft pick Simmons sitting out.Youre 19, Thomas said on NBA TV.Earn your money, get on the floor and play.Simmons status for the Sixers final summer league game on Friday is uncertain.Simmons has sat out the last two games due to rest. But now that the Sixers are in the consolation round, Philadelphia may very well want to continue to be cautious with their No. 1 overall pick.I am not sure, Sixers assistant and summer league coach Lloyd Pierce said of Simmons playing on Friday. We are banged up. We want to get out of here healthy and that is the most important thing... I think tthe biggest concern tomorrow is health.dddddddddddd It is going to be a collective decision I think and we got to go off what Ben says and then management and our training staff as well.We have just scheduled rest yesterday and today (for Simmons), Pierce added. It has been a very long summer and a long process. We dont want to get too much and get greedy and it be an even longer summer.Melbourne-born Simmons will earn more than $US5 million ($A6.5 million) in his rookie year with the 76ers and signed a $US20 million ($A26.20 million) endorsement deal with Nike.Simmons has had highs and lows during his Summer League games for the 76ers, which feature rookie, second-year and young free agents.He has been described as a mini-LeBron James and his passing skills have received rave reviews.However, Simmons has been criticised for not shooting enough. Simmons, in his debut for the 76ers in Utah on July 4 against the Boston Celtics, had to be helped off the court after suffering cramps in his legs.In his three games in Las Vegas Simmons has averaged 11 points, seven rebounds, five assists and 29.7 minutes per game.
