Two US athletes used cocaine before Rio Olympics?

IANS  |  Moscow 

Two US athletes allegedly used cocaine before Rio Olympics, a cyber-espionage group Fancy Bears has revealed.

The group leaked the information by hacking into senior World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officials' confidential emails, reports Sputnik.

WADA emails include conversations with the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) about two US athletes taking Cocaine to lose weight before the Rio Games, held in August.

The group also leaked details of a non-US sportsman, who avoided a ban despite having a blood transfusion before a major race, The Guardian newspaper reported on Friday.

Previously Fancy Bears published WADA documents, which confirmed many prominent athletes including Rafael Nadal, Simone Biles, Serena and Venus Williams using banned drugs.

WADA's Medical Director Alan Vernec said on November 20 the hackers had released fake documents.
