Canadian Olympian Justin Kripps Says Website 'Censored' In Russia

Canadian Bobsledder Justin Kripps says his personal website has been censored in Russia.

Kripps tweeted Friday that he could not access his site from Krasnaya Polayna, where some of the Sochi Olympic events are being held.

Others who tried to access the site from Russia got the same message, which says it has been blocked because of a breach of legislation.

The apparent censorship could be result of a photo of Kripps standing in his underwear with his teammates that went viral ahead of the Games.
