    SYDNEY: The Australian Olympic Committee on Monday denied there was a blanket ban on the use of social media such as Twitter by athletes at the winter Olympics in Sochi. “On the contrary, Australian athletes are encouraged to use social media, but urged to use it responsibly,” Australian Olympic Team Chef de Mission Ian Chesterman said in a statement. “The only restriction applies to the use of social media inside each athlete’s training and competition venue.” Chesterman said the restriction was designed to help athletes “focus 100 percent on their event” and athletes and coaches were free to use social media at all other times while in Russia.
