Simone Biles Reveals She's Been Taking Medication for ADHD After Hackers Leak Her Rio Olympics Drug Test


Tue, Sep 13 5:45 PM PDT

America's golden girl Simone Biles has become the victim of a Russian hacking scandal.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) confirmed Tuesday that a Russian cyber espionage group, known as Fancy Bear , illegally broke into its database and obtained private medical records of American athletes through an International Olympic Committee (IOC)-created account.

Along with Biles' health information, the hackers acquired

Serena Williams and Venus Williams ' records as well. All three athletes were reportedly given medical exemptions to use banned drugs.

The 19-year-old gymnast, who took home four gold medals and one bronze at the Rio Olympics , addressed the drug testing leak on Twitter Tuesday, revealing that she had been taking medication for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

"I have ADHD and I have taken medicine for it since I was a kid. Please know, I believe in clean sport, have always followed the rules, and will continue to do so as fair play is critical to sport and is very important to me," Biles tweeted.


Why exactly would Russia only want the medical records of these 3 women? Simone, Venus and Serena
