The New York Post is reporting that Tiger Woods' Olympic skiing girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was drug-tested on Monday night at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards in New York.
Vonn, who is training for the 2014 Olympics, received a call from the USADA while at the event with designer Cynthia Rowley. The testers then met Rowley in front of the Lincoln Center after which she escorted them to a bathroom where Vonn was waiting and she provided them a sample for their test.
Now, I know that the USADA likes the element of surprise when issuing drug tests, but to me this just seems like overreaching on the part of the drug testers.
Certainly the test could have waited a few hours for when Vonn wasn't at a fancy function so she wouldn't have to go through the humiliation of having to pee in a cup for the USADA.
Maybe the USADA just wanted an excuse to get a glance at some celebrities or knew it would be a news-making test once it was leaked.
Either way, I say the USADA went to far on this one. What do you think?
