Rats, I'd always admired her.
There are more prove that she knew it was for performance enhancement.So? It's a medicine that was legit, it's still legit tons of places..... Coffee boosts performance too but it's legit no? at that time the med was legit too......
Technically you can say that she is not guilty in doping coz the substance is only illegal in 2016 and that she did not know it turned ilegal but she surely is guilty in lying. If she frankly admitted that she took it for ped and not this heart and diabete bull s**t, she will be easier to forgive.I suggest that you read the medicine's effects, it's good for preventing diabetes lol she knew about that too, lol i can take aspirin for some illness while knowing it's good for the heart too, no??????? like for multiple purposes, does that make me a liar?????
Sharapova's hearing conclusioni:Sad, very, very, sad.
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms
Sharapova advising on her nutritional intake, including advice as to medications. The
messages which have been disclosed include the following advice given in 2006 on taking
“Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”
“1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”
“During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4
pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these
matters (please call)”
“30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to
a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
from the above, do you still think she did not know meldonium was for performance enhancement ? She is as guilty as hell
I hope she doesn't appeal and just walks away from the sport.
If true, she is a disgrace to tennis.
I would like to see these matches:
