Website censored by Russia: Canadian bobsledder website reads restricted

A Canadian bobsledder's website is the talk of the globe as it appears to be censored in Russia. Justin Kripps took to Twitter over the weekend to announce that he believes he's being censored because in Russia the website says access has been restricted, according to Fox Sports on Feb. 7.

Reports indicate that there's no problem accessing the website from other countries, just Russia. It is not known if there was any material on the site that would prompt the hosts of the 2014 Olympics to restrict access to one of its guests websites, but Kripps took it lightly tweeting:

''Looks like my website is censored in Russia, haha classic.''

The website offers up Kripp's journey to the Olympics with his training, biography and his stats for the competitions he has been in.

This comes on the heals of a Russia official making what appears to be a slip when he pretty much announced that the bathrooms in the Sochi hotels have cameras in them. While he didn't come right out and say this, what he did say was enough to leave folks wondering.

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister was defending all the talk about the water being yellow in Sochi and the other complaints saturating the online world when he said:

"We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day."

Dmitry Kozak couldn't elaborate on this statement after he blurted it out because when the media tried to get him to explain what he meant by the cameras showing the shower running, an assistant whisked him away.

Is Russia censoring Kripps' website and are people being watched as they are showering in the Sochi Olympic Village? You have to admit, it is great foreign intrigue, which is the stuff good books are made of.
