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. Yannick Ngakoue Womens 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 and 2013.Venus Williams, who won a silver medal in mixed doubles at the Rio Olympics last month, issued a statement via her agent in which she said she was granted TUEs when serious medical conditions have occurred, and those exemptions were reviewed by an anonymous, independent group of doctors, and approved for legitimate medical reasons.Williams revealed in 2011 she had been diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome, an energy-sapping disease.I was disappointed to learn today that my private, medical data has been compromised by hackers and published without my permission, Williams said. I have followed the rules established under the Tennis Anti-Doping Program in applying for, and being granted, therapeutic use exemption. 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 tweet 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.Three-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome said he has no issue with his medical data being leaked.Ive openly discussed my TUEs with the media and have no issues with the leak which confirms my statements, Froome said Thursday in a statement.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 Sept. 6.The Associated Press contributed to this report. Josh Oliver Jaguars Jersey . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. Marqise Lee Jaguars Jersey . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. http:///...rnette-Elite-Jersey/ . By having more great seasons. Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. SUNRISE, Fla. -- Shane Harper waited a long time to score his first NHL goal. He liked the feeling so much, he scored a second one.Harper scored his first two NHL goals to lift the Florida Panthers over the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Saturday night.A pretty incredible feeling, said the 27-year-old rookie. Im just real excited to get that win, especially with some guys being out of the lineup right now with injuries. It just makes it even more important for everybody else to pick up some slack. Thats what were trying to do. That victory makes it so much better.Harper played in the minor leagues for the past seven years and notched 340 games in the AHL and sometimes wondered if he would ever get that first NHL goal.Theres times when you think like that for sure, Harper said. Ive been pretty confident in myself that it would come. I always thought I just needed to get my shot.Vincent Trocheck and Jonathan Marchessault each had a goal and an assist and Aaron Ekblad also scored a goal for the Panthers while Roberto Luongo made 26 saves.Matt Duchene and Blake Comeau scored goals for the Avalanche. Semyon Varlamov made 33 stops.The Panthers blew the game open in the third period as they scored three of four goals in a span of 2:26.Ahead 2-1, Marchessault skated in on a breakaway and fired the puck between the pads of Varlamov at 4:30 to make the score 3-1. Harper followed with his second goal of the game on a one-timer from in front to stretch the lead to 4-1.Duchene poked in a rebound past Luongo 16 seconds later to close the gap to 4-2.Trocheck slid a loose puck into the net at 6:56 to make the score 5-2 and shared in Harpers excitement.To see him, 27-years-old, finally get his first NHL goal and pop two in the same game, its definitely exciting to see that, Trocheck said.The Panthers took 17 shots and scored two goals in the second period.Florida had a 2-1 lead on the goal by Harper with 2:58 left in the second. Greg McKegg stole the puck from Duchene in the neutral zone and bbrought it down the left side. Taven Bryan Jersey. McKegg passed to Harper in front and he poked the puck over the glove of Varmalov for his first goal.He found the back of the net twice and that was real good, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. The kid played hard, he works hard and going hard to the net and you get rewarded.Colorado played a strong first period but faded in the second and third.Crucial mistakes at crucial times cost us. (It) was not good enough, Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog said.Trailing 1-0, the Panthers evened the score at 1-all on the power-play when Ekblad took a feed from Jagr low in the left circle and one-timed the puck past Varlamov at 1:30. Ekblad recorded his first point of the season.Comeaus power-play goal gave the Avalanche a 1-0 lead at 7:38 of the first. Tyson Barrie shot from the blue line and Comeau tipped the puck past Luongo on the glove side. The goal was the first the Panthers have allowed on the power-play in nine opportunities.A little bit of a roller coaster for us, I think, Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. I like the way the game started, the first period, but we werent able to sustain it.A coachs challenge by Colorado overturned a goal by Jason Demers midway through the first. His slapper got past Varlamov but the officials ruled Vincent Trocheck was offsides before the shot.Colorado is coming off a four-game road trip and wont play until they host Winnipeg on Friday.We need a little rest to get ready for next weekend, Bednar said.Game notes Avalanche C John Mitchell missed the game with a lower-body injury. ... Panthers LW Jussi Jokinen missed the game with a knee injury. ... The Panthers entered the game as the only team in the NHL yet to allow a power-play goal but the streak ended in the first period.UP NEXT:Avalanche: Host Winnipeg Jets on Friday.Panthers: Visit Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.
