A Singaporean swimmer has seen his hopes of qualifying for the Zika-threatened Rio de Janeiro Olympics hampered by another mosquito-borne illness after he contracted dengue fever.
Danny Yeo, a 25-year-old freestyle specialist, contracted the virus two weeks ago and said he was unlikely to be at 100 percent for his last Olympic trial at the Singapore National Age Group Championships (SNAG) from March 16-20.
“If I said it wouldn’t affect me, it would be a lie,” he was quoted as saying in Monday’s Straits Times.
