With less than 200 days remaining until the opening ceremony of the biggest sports event of the year – Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro – best paddlers are training hard to be in top shape in the season 2016. Many of the best slalom paddlers are now in Australia where they work on their skills at the 2000 Olympic Slalom Course in Penrith. One of the training days was especially unusual as they had an extremely dangerous visitor at the course. As you can see in the video made by European, World and Olympic Champion Daniele Molmenti (ITA) snake found its way not only to the river bank but also into the water. The eastern brown snake is considered the world's second most venomous land snake.
