Australia's first Winter Olympics gold medallist, Dale Begg-Smith, has been revealed as a spyware seller.
According to reports in The Age, Begg-Smith is the president of AdsCPM Network (also known as CPM Media), which has been identified by security vendors as using key-logging software, redirecting home pages and monitoring browsing habits.
Begg-Smith, who won his medal for mogul skiing, was reportedly annoyed that so many of the questions at the post competition press conference related to his business activities rather than his sporting prowess.
"I do not know why we are talking about the company," he said. "I just won Olympic gold."
The Canada-born skier said that he scaled down his company's activities, which he refused to name directly, to allow for his skiing.
The Lamborghini-driving 21 year-old has never disclosed how much he earns from his businesses, but figures of $40m have been quoted by Bloomberg.
