London 2012 Olympics: Athletes rebel at social media crackdown

Olympic athletes today united in an online rebellion against a social media clampdown which bans them from posting pictures thanking their sponsors.

” I’m so happy that Social Media users will not conform to silence instructions.!  :o)
This is an especially ill thoughtout instruction given the well covered news items in the UK with regard to the tax breaks offered to Official Olympic Sponsors. It seams very mean to try and prevent the athletes from thanking their sponsor. Some of these people have just one sponsor and it is sometimes just a small local business backing these champions simply because they have known them growing up. Pffft!” Sadie
