WADA Account Of Russian Whistle-Blower Hacked


Yulia Stepanova

August 13, 2016

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) says the electronic account that shows Yulia Stepanova's location has been hacked. The 800-meter runner is in hiding after helping to expose Russian state-sponsored doping. WADA’s electronic system ADAMS allows athletes to enter information about their whereabouts to help the agency coordinate testing.

The anti-doping body said on August 13 that Stepanova's account on ADAMS had been accessed by someone other than the athlete. "WADA is in contact with the relevant law enforcement authorities," a statement said. Stepanova and her husband, Vitaly, a former Russian anti-doping official, left Russia after giving evidence of the extent of Russia's state-sanctioned doping program and cover-ups. They are currently living in an undisclosed location.

Yulia ... beware the Polonium-laced tea.
