GENEVA -- Russian hackers broke into a World Anti-Doping Agency database and posted confidential medical data online Tuesday of some United States female athletes who competed at the Rio Olympics -- including gymnast Simone Biles, tennis players Serena and Venus Williams and basketball player Elena Delle Donne. Gary Sanchez Jersey .WADA said the attack was carried out by a Russian cyber espionage group called Fancy Bears, who revealed records of therapeutic use exemptions -- which allow athletes to use substances that are banned if there is a verified medical need.?The hackers posted medical records of Biles that showed the four-time gold medalist tested positive for methylphenidate after four tests -- Aug. 11, Aug. 14, Aug. 15 and Aug. 16. However, Biles was issued certificates that, per the International Gymnastics Federation, approved the one-daily use of the drug (15 mg) for therapeutic use for one-year periods in September 2012 and September 2013. In December 2013, Biles was again issued a one-year certificate for dexmethylphenidate that included an additional 10 mg dose per day, and that certificate for both dosages was extended for a four-year period from December 2014 to December 2018.Biles responded on Twitter, saying that she has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and has 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, she said.?USA Gymnastics issued a statement on Twitter confirming that Biles records were breached from the WADA database by hackers.?The Williams sisters did not test positive in Rio, according to the records posted by the hackers, but had been granted multiple certificates of approval, authorized by the International Tennis Federation, for specified periods since 2010. Serena Williams was last approved for using prednisolone for a six-day period in June 2015. In the past, Serena also had approvals for methylprednisolone, hydromorphone, oxycodone and prednisone. Venus, meanwhile, had exceptions for triamcinolone, prednisone, formoterol and prednisolone for specified periods between 2010 to 2013.The ITF also cautioned against unjustified conclusions being drawn from exemptions it approved.All TUEs granted under the Tennis Anti-Doping Program are for the legitimate therapeutic use of medications and are in no way indicative of doping or a breach of the anti-doping rules, International Tennis Federation president David Haggerty said in a statement.According to the hackers documents, Delle Donne, who averaged 8.6 points per game as the U.S. won the gold in womens basketball, tested positive for using an amphetamine on Aug. 20, but she, too, had a certificate of approval, authorized by FIBA, for therapeutic use that was issued for a four-year period from Aug. 7, 2014 to Aug. 7, 2018. In addition, Delle Donne had another certificate, also authorized by FIBA, permitting the usage of a banned hydrocortisone from 2014 to 2018.Id like to thank the hackers for making the world aware that I legally take a prescription for a condition Ive been diagnosed with, which WADA granted me an exception for, Delle Donne said in a Twitter post Tuesday. Thanks guys!USADA CEO Travis Tygart issued a statement Tuesday condemning the hackers attempt to smear athletes to make it look as if they have done something wrong.The athletes havent, Tygart continued. In fact, in each of the situations, the athlete has done everything right in adhering to the global rules for obtaining permission to use a needed medication. The respective International Federations, through the proper process, granted the permission and it was recognized by the IOC and USADA.The cyber-bullying of innocent athletes being engaged in by these hackers is cowardly and despicable. It is time for the entire international community to stand up and condemn this cyber-attack on clean sport and athletes rights.WADA previously warned of cyberattacks after investigators it appointed published reports into Russian state-sponsored doping.These criminal acts are greatly compromising the effort by the global anti-doping community to re-establish trust in Russia, World Anti-Doping Agency director general Olivier Niggli said in a statement.WADA said it extended its investigation with the relevant law enforcement authorities.Last month, hackers obtained a database password for Russian runner Yuliya Stepanova, a whistleblower and key witness for the WADA investigations. She and her husband, a former official with the Russian national anti-doping agency, are now living at an undisclosed location in North America.A spokesman for Russian state President Vladimir Putin rejected WADAs statement blaming Russian hackers as unfounded.There can be no talk about any official or government involvement, any involvement of Russian agencies in those actions. Its absolutely out of the question, spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies. Such unfounded accusations dont befit any organization, if they arent backed by substance.The International Olympic Committee said it strongly condemns such methods which clearly aim at tarnishing the reputation of clean athletes.The IOC can confirm however that the athletes mentioned did not violate any anti-doping rules during the Olympic Games Rio 2016, the Olympic body said.Those behind the breach have adopted the name Fancy Bears, an apparently tongue-in-cheek reference to a collection of hackers which many security researchers have long associated with Russia.In a statement posted to its website early Tuesday, the group proclaimed its allegiance to Anonymous, the loose-knit movement of online mischief-makers, and said it hacked WADA to show the world how Olympic medals are won.We will start with the U.S. team which has disgraced its name by tainted victories, the group said, adding that more revelations about other teams were forthcoming.Internet records suggest Fancy Bears data dump has been in the works for at least two weeks; their website was registered on Sept. 1 and their Twitter account was created on Sept. 6.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Roger Maris Jersey . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Miguel Andujar Jersey . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http:///...Johnson-Kids-Jersey/ . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead.Nico Rosberg took his first pole position of the season in China, where Lewis Hamilton hit unreliability problems and will start from last. The world champion failed to set a time during Q1 as Mercedes battled ERS problems on his hybrid power unit that left him down on power.Hamilton was already set to take a five-place grid penalty for changing his gearbox, but now has a mammoth task on Sunday starting from 22nd. You can overtake here, the tyres wont last as well. Ill give it everything Ive got, Hamilton told Sky Sports F1.The one silver lining for the Mercedes driver is he has plenty of new tyres available for the race. Lewis Hamilton will start the Chinese GP at the back of the grid after mechanical problems hampered his qualifying Starting from pole, Rosberg will have the advantage of starting on soft compound tyres after gambling on making it into Q3 on the slower tyres during Q2.The pressure was on at the beginning of Q3 when Kimi did a good time, Rosberg told Sky Sports F1.It is good that I am starting on the softs, Im not sure what is planned after that, but I think the plan is not to use the supersofts. After team-mate Lewis Hamilton failed to make it out of Q1, Mercedes Nico Rosberg secured pole He will be joined on the front row by Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo, whose smile was even wider than normal after a shock result.Where on earth that came from? Im quite shocked actually, to qualify on the front row is an incredible performance, Red Bull boss Christian Horner told Sky Sports F1. Ferrari, who had looked the team to beat throughout practice, had to settle for the second row of the grid. Kimi Raikkonen will start third and Sebastian Vettel fourth after an action-packed session which more than justified the return to the 2015 qualifying format.We saved a set of tyres, I was confident that I could make it on the last lap, but I didnt, Vettel told Sky F1.I wasnt happy with the lap, I made a couple of small mistakes here and there that cost me quite a lot of time. Valtteri Bottas was fifth for Williams, ahead of Daniil Kvyat, Sergio Perez and the Toro Rosso pair of Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen.Nico Hulkenberg did make it into Q3, but his front left wheel came loose and bounced down the track late in Q2, forcing him to stop the car, ruling him out of the top-10 shootout. He was handed a three-place grid penalty for an unsafe release. Nico Hulkenbergs Chinese qualifying comes to an abrupt end after the front left tyre of his Force India comes off and hits the safety barriers. Didi Gregorius Jersey. That incident caused a late red flag in Q2 and with only just over a minute left on the clock meant those in the drop zone were unable to post another time.Arrgh, arrgh, exclaimed a frustrated Fernando Alonso over the radio when told he wouldnt get one final attempt at a spot in Q3.The Spaniard qualified 12th, one spot above team-mate Jenson Button after McLaren sent both their drivers out on used tyres for their initial runs, before being forced to abort their laps on new supersofts. They will both move up one spot thanks to Hulkenbergs penalty.Both McLarens had the potential to be in Q3, we didnt use the new tyres, the full engine power, we were waiting on that final lap and we never started it, Alonso later told Sky Sports F1. Pascal Wehrlein hits a bump near the start-finish line and ends up in the wall causing a red flag during qualifying Q1 was delayed by over 20 minutes when Pascal Wehrlein hit the wall on the pit straight after losing control of his Manor.The German opened his DRS just before hitting a wet patch of track below the media centre bridge. That lack of rear grip combined with a bump on the track sent his Manor spearing into the wall.The marshals then attempted to dry the track using sweepers, but had little impact on the conditions.Embarrassingly for Renault, who have senior management present in Shanghai, both cars went out in the first part of qualifying, along with the Haas of Esteban Gutierrez and the Manor of Rio Haryanto.
