Four more British athletes named in Fancy Bear hack

Cyclist Laura Trott and boxer Nicola Adams are among those whose medical information was published by the cyber espionage group on Friday.

The head of UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) condemned the latest leak of British athletes' medical records by computer hackers from the group 'Fancy Bears', which is believed to be Russian, and who have targeted the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The gold medallists Adams and Trott, plus the silver medal-winning rower Olivia Carnegie-Brown and swimmer Siobhan-Marie O’Connor – had details of their historic therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) placed on the Fancy Bears website.

"We absolutely condemn the latest release of personal information pertaining to members of Team GB," said UKAD chief executive Nicole Sapstead in a statement.

"It is causing unnecessary and unwarranted worry for the athletes affected. We continue to treat this matter with the utmost concern and seriousness and we are in close contact with WADA."

TUEs can be issued to athletes who have an illness or condition that requires the use of normally prohibited medication.

There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by any of the individuals whose details have been leaked.

A spokesman for Trott told Britain's Press Association: "It's well known that Laura has suffered from asthma from an early age and inhalers are part of most asthmatics' lives.

"It's disappointing that her medical records have been put on the internet, but asthma is something she's always been happy to discuss."

The group previously leaked data about British cyclists Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome, as well as American tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams and four-time Olympic gymnastics champion Simone Biles.

The latest revelations came as the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, said that the leaked documents “cannot fail to be interesting” to the international community. The Russian state continues to deny having anything to do with the hack.
