PARTY IS OVER: In Sydney, Jeffery wrote in a separate piece "the party is over" for Australia's Olympic athletes, with the AOC "banning alcohol as part of a crackdown on athlete behaviour at the 2016 Games in Brazil." The move "will particularly target athletes, such as the swimmers and rowers, who compete in the first week of the Games and traditionally party hard in the Olympic village through the second week, frequently disturbing team members." The new Australian Olympic team Chef de Mission Kitty Chiller "has decreed that the Olympic village at Rio de Janeiro in 2016 will be an alcohol-free zone for Australian athletes as will the charter flight back to Sydney after the Games." Chiller said, "Athletes need to understand their responsibilities, so our village and the flight home will be dry" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 10/24).
