Report: Tiger's Girlfriend Linked to Notorious Doping Doctor
Lindsey Vonn, girlfriend of Tiger Woods and top American skier, is under scrutiny after a New York Daily News investigation that showed that she has visited the laboratory of infamous doping doctor Bernd Pansold.
There is no evidence that Vonn, whose interactions with the doctor
occur on Red Bull sponsored training trips, has ever doped. She has never failed a drug test and there never has been suspicion around her. Nevertheless, the connection is disturbing. Pansold was at the center of
the German Democratic Republic's state-sponsored doping program on
young athletes that has been called a crime against humanity.
The Daily News article expresses concern about the vulnerability
experienced by athletes with regards to their corporate sponsorships and
the trainers they see. Reportedly, Vonn sees Pansold twice a year.
