Lindsey Vonn was reportedly drug tested while at a fashion event
Lindsey Vonn reportedly had to take a mandatory drug test earlier this week, and the timing could not have been much worse. According to the NY Post, Vonn was dressed in a fancy gown at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards on Monday night when she got a call from the International Olympic Committee.
Like the NFL, the IOC has the right to drug test its competitors anywhere. No seriously, anywhere. Several drug testers were reportedly waiting for Vonn outside the Lincoln Center in New York City. Designer Cynthia Rowley rushed them into the event and allowed them to perform the test.
“Lindsay met the IOC at the bathroom,” a source told Page Six. “Cynthia stood guard outside, and no one was allowed to enter the bathroom. They were in there for about five minutes.
“Here Lindsey is in this custom-made gown, feeling like Cinderella, and she has to get up and do a drug test.”
The urine was reportedly tested on the spot and Vonn was given the results — she passed — and told to enjoy her evening. Vonn, who is rehabbing from a knee injury and training for the 2014 Olympics in Russia, did not mention the test afterword and seemed accustomed to that type of unexpected visit.
And this NFL player thought being tested while he was visiting his grandma was bad? Between the media pestering her about Tiger Woods and drug testers showing up at fashion events, it seems like Lindsey literally doesn’t have a moment of privacy these days. In many ways, that’s the path she chose.
