Skier Lindsey Vonn was Drug-Tested at the CFDA Awards, And, No, I'm Not Making This Up

Getty ImagesGetty Images Lindsey Vonn, Olympic skier and girlfriend of Tiger Woods, had to take a drug test at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday night. Attending as a guest of designer Cynthia Rowley, she reportedly received a call from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency saying they were standing outside and informing Lindsey she would need to take a test.

While I understand it is common practice that Olympic athletes are drug-tested at random, picking this particular occasion to have Lindsey pee in a cup seems a little over the top to me.

"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."

Afterward, Lindsey brushed off the whole situation, saying, "We're having a great time and [Rowley] did a great job with the dress."

Well, it sounds like she's used to this kind of thing. I may be a little cynical, but I think the USADA's decision to test Lindsey at this event sounds like a publicity stunt. Did the USADA choose this particular evening to make a strong statement about how seriously they take this issue? Was this the night to do that?

Do you think this was this a publicity stunt by the USADA, or do you think it's not a big deal that the organization chose this night to test Lindsey? Discuss!
