US rower Jamie Schroeder was robbed at gunpoint while visiting a tourist site in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but wasn't harmed.
Schroeder and his parents were visiting the Santa Teresa shrine when a motor scooter pulled up and a man pointed a gun at him. He was told to give the man whatever he had, and then the robber took off on the vehicle.
The 25-year-old Schroeder is from the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, IL.
He'll race tomorrow in the men's quad sculls.
