Canadian bobsledder's website blocked in Russia

By Associated Press

POSTED:


SOCHI, Russia >> The website of Canadian bobsled racer Justin Kripps has been blocked in Russia.

When viewed in Russia, including at the Sochi Games, the site displays a notice in Russian saying access has been restricted and that it could be for a range of reasons, including a court order or because the site is on a Russian blacklist.

The website was accessible to Internet users outside Russia, with pictures and biographical information and updates on Kripps' training and competition results.

Kripps commented on the incident Friday on Twitter: "Looks like my website is censored in Russia, haha classic."

It wasn't immediately clear whether any of the material on the 27-year-old's website could have provoked action from Russian authorities.
