KRASNAYA POLAYNA, Russia (NEWS1130) – A Canadian Olympic athlete says it “looks like” his website has been censored in Russia.
Bobsledder Justin Kripps has tweeted that he was unable to view his personal website from the Olympic mountain cluster in Krasnaya Polayna, Russia.
Kripps, who is from Summerland, posted a screenshot of justinkripps.ca from his personal computer. But instead of the usual collection of photos and blog posts, it was replaced with a simple white page with a lengthy message written in Cyrllic.
“Looks like my website is censored in Russia, haha classic #SochiProblems I wonder if there’s a camera in my room” posted Kripps from his verified Twitter account.
The Canadian Olympic Committee did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
