New York • Lindsey Vonn took an unexpected detour during her evening at an awards show — off the red carpet and into the women's bathroom for drug testing.

Vonn was at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards at Lincoln Center on Monday when testers from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency escorted her to the restroom for a urine test. The test was sent to a lab and results weren't immediately available.

USADA and Vonn's agent confirmed Monday's test, which was first reported by the New York Post.

Olympic athletes are subject to random testing and required to fill out forms notifying USADA of their whereabouts at all times.

Vonn's agent, Lewis Kay, says the test wasn't a big deal to the skier, who wore a custom-made gown to the event.
