Lindsey Vonn Made To Pee In A Cup At CFDA Gala
There’s some debate as to whether certain professional sports leagues are actually interested in catching players using performance enhancing drugs, but when it comes to the International Olympic Committee, there is no debate at all. The IOC tests elite athletes in random fashion on a year round basis. In the United States, the testing is carried out by the US Anti-Doping Agency, and let the record show they will surprise an athlete anywhere, apparently including inside a glitzy gala at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards.
Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, who has made plenty of recent headlines for her relationship with Tiger Woods, was attending the aforementioned CFDA event at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday when she got a cell phone call from the USADA asking her to meet several drug testers outside. According to The New York Post, she agreed and ushered them into a nearby women’s bathroom where she reportedly peed in a cup, fixed her dress and quickly headed back inside the event.
Other women may have complained about the inconvenience, especially given the occasion, but Vonn has been randomly drug tested at events like this for more than a decade. She’s very comfortable with the system and no doubt realizes such randomness really is the best way to keep Olympic sports cleaner than some of the other ones.
There’s no reason to think Vonn won’t pass the aforementioned drug test considering she has a clean record, but if she doesn’t, you’ll sure as hell here about it, as tends to happen with any story involving bizarre behavior and urine.
