Olympian Justin Kripps Says Website Censored In Russia

Early this morning, Olympian bobsledder and Summerland hometown boy, Justin Kripps sent a tweet out that his website has been censored by Russia.

Seems a photo posted early in January was the cause for concern. While the bobsled team's beards are most often the topic of conversation, this time Justin posed the question of the team's weight, complete with a photo of team in their underwear.

A bit too much for the Russians.

Here's the tweet that's gone global:

 

In the Okanagan, fans are just anxious to cheer one of their own on to victory in Sochi. The four-man bobsleigh competition begins February 22 at 8:30 am.
