No, Simone Biles and Venus Williams are not going to be stripped of their medals. As Simone said, she had prior permission from WADA to take her medication (containing banned substance) due to her condition (ADHD). In theory at least, these exemptions are available to any athlete who can prove that s/he has an underlying condition and needs medication for that. Also, I hope, they need to show that other medications (without the banned substance) can't work. This exemption could be time bound (when an athlete is recovering from surgery/injury) or long term (I am assuming that Biles has a long term exemption). Legally speaking, I think, they have broken no law and hence, there is no chance of ban or stripping of medals.

ur assessment is spot on...but the same Russian hackers have stated that there are more exposes to follow....

So, the issue is far from over

Plus, the same group of hackers have stated that they have lots of data to show how doping is rampant even in the US..

So, lets expect fireworks
