Russian athletes banned from Olympics while Americans get a free pass for taking banned drugs

WADA site hacked, American athletes medical data splashed over the internet

Russian hacking group Fancy Bears’ Hack Team on Tuesday claimed to have accessed the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) database, alleging that American tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams and four-time Rio Olympics gold medallist gymnast Simone Biles have been allowed to consume banned substances.

The hacking site claimed to have leaked dozens of files allegedly relating to United States athletes on the internet, reports Sputnik.

The site claimed former No.1 Serena was allowed to take banned substances such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, prednisone and methylprednisolone in 2010, 2014 and 2015.

The hacking site also claimed that Simone Biles failed a doping test yet avoided disqualification.

Serena’s sister Venus was allowed to take prednisone, prednisolone and triamcinolone among others in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The documents do not reveal the diagnoses of the athletes which led to WADA allowing them to take the substances.
