Competitors' Blogs Banned

Those Olympic competitors who are hoping to update their fans with an inside view of the Winter Olympics in Turin, will be disappointed and frustrated.

The International Olympic Committee are banning all competitors' blogs during the course of the games.

The Olympic Charter bans athletes' journalist activities when the games are on, and violators will be disqualified. It seems that personal blogs are counted as "journalistic activities".
