Russian hackers leak more athletes files

Hackers allegedly from Russia have released more athletes’ medical files stolen from the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada).

The athletes include British cyclists Sir Bradley Wiggins, who won a gold medal in Rio, and Chris Froome, the three-time Tour de France champion.

There is no suggestion the athletes are involved in any wrongdoing.

Wada says the cyber attack is an attempt to undermine the global anti-doping system.

The records released by the group calling itself “Fancy Bears” mostly detail “Therapeutic Use Exemptions” allowing banned substances to be taken for athletes’ verified medical needs.

The documents relate to 10 American, five British and five German athletes as well as one athlete each from Denmark, Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic and Romania.

It follows an earlier leak of documents relating to US athletes including multiple gold-winning US gymnast Simone Biles.
