The World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) has condemned Russian hackers for leaking confidential medical files of US Olympic athletes.

Athletes affected include tennis players Venus and Serena Williams and teenage gymnast Simone Biles.

A group calling itself "Fancy Bears" claimed responsibility for the hack of a Wada database.

After the leak, Ms Biles said she had long been taking medicine for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

1. Serena has had a busted up ankle, a blood clot on her lung that almost cost her her life

and numerous other injuries.

Those drugs are not performance enhancing drugs, but prescriptions necessary for pain relief and injury recovery. If WADA approved them, then they're APPROVED.

Venus' use of Triamcinolone and the prednisones are for a skin condition. Hardly performance enhancing drugs. She's immune compromised, and that's all the drugs she's needed? That's awesome and shows how clean living can have such a huge and positive impact on your health.

Whatta buncha crap out of these russian carebears. I do love seeing the Williams sisters vindicated!

2. None of the drugs are approved...they were given an exemption for use...

 

There's a difference...these are banned drugs.

Does make one wonder who else is on there, especially since just releasing 4 names makes it seem like the exemptions are out of the ordinary when in fact this might be very common, not only with American athletes. Like more Russian hackers, take this release with a grain of salt because they have an agenda.

who got up to what on this hack. names at the top of the list....

4. They say they're going to release more names...

 

I tend to doubt that...seems like they wanted to highlight these 4.
