Now that the Olympics are over, we thought we’d finally be done with any and all controversy surrounding the games.
But thanks to some hackers (oh, and that DWTS protest), the world just can’t escape the drama!
A group of Russian computer hackers called the Fancy Bears Hack Team recently got their hands on and then published some documents from the World Anti-Doping Agency that show Olympic gold medalist and Rio darling Simone Biles, along with Serena Williams and Venus Williams, were given medical exemptions to use banned drugs!
The hacktivist group took to Twitter to share the documents:
It didn’t take long for WADA to confirm the news saying:
Though Venus and Serena have yet to comment — WADA and the International Gymnastics Federation haven’t released statement either — Simone did!
The 19-year-old athlete has once again taken it upon herself to serve as a shining example of a hero to kids as she respectfully handled the controversy by owning it and revealing she has ADHD! The little gymnast responded by tweeting:
The little gold medalist also tweeted:
Having ADHD, and taking medicine for it is nothing to be ashamed of nothing that I’m afraid to let people know.

Talk about the PERFECT way to address a sticky situation!
We get that everyone wants a fair match, but if the price is invading the athletes’s personal privacy just for the truth, well no thank you!
There’s sure to be more news and responses to come, but until then keep doing you, Simone!
