They must have the best computer programmers in the world over there. How do they get all of this information. Are they really hacking or do they actually acquire it from a good source.

What bothers me is why only the US and only certain players on the list were named? If this was in response to the ban that was placed on Russian athletes they should have released everything and about all countries that were involved in agreeing to the ban.

Athletes affected include tennis players Venus and Serena Williams and teenage gymnast Simone Biles.
A group calling itself"Fancy Bears" claimed responsibility for the hack of a Wada database.
After the leak, Ms Biles said she had long been taking medicine for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

“WADA condemns these ongoing cyber-attacks that are being carried out in an attempt to undermine WADA and the global anti-doping system,” said WADA director general Olivier Niggli in a statement. “Let it be known that these criminal acts are greatly compromising the effort by the global anti-doping community to re-establish trust in Russia further to the outcomes of the Agency’s independent McLaren Investigation Report,” he added.

The hackers wrote on their website that the United States had “played well but not fair” in Rio, and the medical documents were quickly hailed in Russia on Tuesday as evidence of widespread doping among American athletes, and the double-standards of global antidoping regulators.

Russian hackers leak medical files of US athletes including Venus and Serena Williams and Rio star Simone Biles. Russian hackers — possibly the same group that compromised the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers two months ago — have made top American athletes their latest target.

A Russian hacker group known as “Fancy Bears” has accessed and leaked medical files from some of the most popular Olympic athletes, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has confirmed. Venus and Serena Williams, as well as gymnast Simone Biles, were among the targets. The attack isn’t all that surprising, considering that WADA recommended banning all of Russia’s Olympic contenders this year after it discovered a long-running state-run doping program. Ultimately, more than 100 Russian athleteswere banned from this year’s summer Olympics.

They should have put this out before the Olympics, it would have done more damage. No one really cares at this point from what I can see.

Less than a month ago, the agency confirmed that a hacker had accessed the Adams account for Yuliya Stepanova, the Russian 800-metre runner who blew the whistle on the widespread doping among her country’s Olympic team.
