Daily pollution tests for Beijing Olympics, says IOC head

A monitoring system will check every day whether air pollution warrants delaying events at next years Games, Reuters reported Jacques Rogge, the International Olympic Committee chief, as saying on Thursday.
Endurance events like the marathon could be delayed by a few hours or until another day, according to pollution levels, Rogge was quoted as saying.
"Together with the Chinese we are setting up a whole series of test sites, more than 20 in Beijing will give us information online," Rogge said.
