Paralympic sailor Liesl Tesch and physiotherapist Sarah Ross
said they were taking a bike ride in a park near their hotel at
Flamengo Beach early on Sunday when they were confronted by two
men, one of whom was carrying a pistol.
Australia's Chef de Mission Kitty Chiller said the incident was
a "light warning" and that she had written to the Rio organizing
committee and mayor demanding action.
"Obviously you can't ignore that stuff. We have got some stuff
together with our family to make sure they are looked after,"
Mills, who plays for San Antonio Spurs in the NBA, told News
"It is an Olympics and you want to make sure you share that
experience with your family and friends as much as you can.
"Definitely I am putting some focus into that to make sure they
are looked after and healthy."
Asked if he would take a bodyguard to Rio, Mills said: "Yeah,
over in America we have got some people connected to make sure
they are looked after."
