Serena Williams Was Drug Tested More Than Other Athletes
The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has been over testing Serena Williams.
Rumors of world renown tennis player using performance-enhancing drugs, among other things have always been the topic of discussion when Serena’s talent and stats are talked about.
According to the USADA Serena has been tested five times which is much more frequent than the other top female tennis players and some not tested at all. And she was tested more than the top five American male players.
In response to the results at the Wimbledon tournament press conference, Serena says she did not know she was being tested more than everyone else. Despite the fact that during her time in tennis Serena has never tested positive for any performance-enhancing drugs.
She said, “It would be impossible for me to not feel some kind of way about that. I just found it quite interesting.”
Serena has been an advocate for equal rights and fair treatment in the industry for years. Her reoccurring testing is bringing so negative attention to the USADA and how athlete testing is enforced.
