NT NEWS. 11 P U B : NTNE-WS-DA-TE:6-AGE:11 CO-LO-R: C-M Y-K Nick DArcy and Kenrick Monk got into hot water for posting this photo on Facebook earlier this year Bad lads get a break LONDON: Swimmers Nick DArcy and Kenrick Monk will holiday with family and friends in Europe instead of returning to Australia under disciplinary action imposed by Olympic chiefs. The London 2012 Australian team members were to leave the Olympic village at the completion of swimming events as the result of a photo posted on Facebook which showed the pair holding firearms while training in the United States. Australian team chief Nick Green, who imposed the punishment, said early last week that the pair would still be sent home on August 4 as originally planned. But in a statement issued at the weekend an Australian Olympic Committee spokesman said the team executive had agreed to a change in plans to allow them to leave with their families. They have surrendered their accreditation and left the Olympic Village, the statement said. The AOC team executive has agreed to this change in plans on the basis that Monk and DArcy do not remain in London or return to London during the period of the London Olympic Games. They have given an undertaking to adhere to the earlier sanction and not engage in social media activity during the Games period. Their travel back to Australia would be at their own cost, the statement said. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l NATION
