Oh dear, she's playing little Miss Goodie Two Shoes but the evidence is stacked up against her.

There's an on-line facility to check all drugs and that clearly states that Meldonium is banned.

She'd been contacted five times advising her about it.

She claims it was taken for something which it doesn't protect against - a heart condition.

She's been taking it for ten years yet it should only be taken fro 4-6 weeks.

It's been known to help facilitate performance.

Loads of other top athletes have been taking it...(all with heart conditions?), I wonder why?

As she says, she's only got herself to blame and she's let her fans down...and the sport.

Surprised no one else has commented on this.

Suspect she used the drug for the physical benefits, then hadn't realised it was added to the list. Wouldn't surprise me if she was using it without everyone in her team realised.

Very disappointed in Head's reaction to this

The questions I would ask are

Did the testers know Sharapova was using this drug prior to it going on the banned list. If so why not advise her.

Was there any masking agent in her blood steam that she may have thought would cover up the use of this drug.

Has detective work moved forward sufficiently to now find people who used masking agents to conceal these performance enhancers.

Me too. Anyhow, you did. :wink:

It's being argued loud and clear that she'd been sent 5 emails about it and now she allegedly confesses that she didn't think that she'd be tested for it so soon. Very strange.

It's been well-known for ages that Meldonium carries more oxygen through the blood to to the muscles facilitating enhanced performance, the surprise is that it's taken the authorities so long to ban it.

This did lead to an interesting conversation with my students this week, as to what is a PED and what isn't. I mean, protein powder and vitamins are taken because they enhance performance

Fine line in some substances between a performance enhancer and a supplement.

Tiger Woods got his eyes lazered a few years ago, and now has 20/10 vision, which is actually the same as a hawk. Yet it wasn't believed to be performance enhancing, fuck knows why not.

Maria has been a silly girl, but as a brand, is she the only one to blame? I'd still give her one.

Yes, you've been a naughty girl.
