D'Arcy, Monk defy media ban

Controversial swimmer Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk could be in trouble with AOC officials yet again after the pair flouted a social media ban by posting photos of themselves holidaying in Croatia.

The mates were photographed aboard a luxury yacht on the island of Hvar, in images that were uploaded to Facebook on the final day of the London Games, news.com.au reports.

D'Arcy and Monk appear to have also ignored an AOC directive to leave London after their events were completed following their previous social media indiscretion.

Last month the swimmers were disciplined after they posted photos of themselves posing with guns at a US shooting range in the lead up to the Games.

D'Arcy's father had successfully convinced the AOC to allow his son to join the rest of his family for a holiday in Croatia but he has reportedly already returned to Australia.

D'Arcy has also been criticised for taking the holiday after declaring himself bankrupt.

D'Arcy declared himself bankrupt last year after he was ordered to pay former swimmer Simon Cowley $180,000 in damages after he king-hit him in a nightclub in 2008.

Cowley's lawyer Sam Macedone said the infamous swimmer should have been prevented from taking the family trip.

"I understand the trustee gave his permission to go to the Olympic Games to try to win a gold medal, but that is it.

"The fact that he's gone from London to Croatia, to me is totally against his travel conditions."

D'Arcy's bankruptcy trustee Robert Whitten has said that bankrupt people are allowed to have holidays and the swimmer will surrender his passport when he returns to Australia.
