Simone Biles admitted to being diagnosed with ADHD – and she is not ashamed to tell the world about it. The Olympic gold medalist made this announcement after Russian hackers released to the public some confidential records of the US Olympic athletes. One of the data revealed was her history of being tested positive for Ritalin (methylphenidate).

After the statement of the hacking was released by the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA), Simone Biles took to twitter for her statement.

The medicine methylphenidate is banned by WADA but Biles was given clearance because of her medical condition.

Despite her medical history, Simone Biles shocked us all with her perfect performance in the recent Rio Olympics. She went on to win four gold medals.

If this issue meant to shame her after the triumphant stint in the Olympics, the hackers are mistaken. Biles also sent this tweet to say that she was not ashamed of her past.
