But athletes are also receiving a lot of malicious replies. Korean short-track skaters Choi Min-jeong and Seo Yi-ra were recently bombarded with more than 20,000 replies. They were posted by Chinese fans after several Chinese athletes were disqualified in races with their Korean rivals.

The two athletes eventually either shut down their social media accounts or blocked access. Social media has emerged as a new means of connecting athletes and their fans.
