Andy Murray tweeted in 2013 ''Read and respect the rules and everything is very simple''. He was referring to an incident between WADA & Marin Cilic and Vicktor Troiki. Troiki failed to turn up for a test and Cilic tested positive for a banned substance. Murray called them ''Unprofessional''. With the Olympics only a few months away, their is a dark cloud over Russian Sports and this Sharapova revelation only deepens the crisis even further.
Nike last night suspended their sponsorship deal with Sharapova and no doubt other companies will follow suit. The question on everyone's lips is, If the substance was banned recently, then surely it should have been banned year's ago but didn't appear on the radar. Can we assume that Meldonium which increases physical capabilities has somehow helped Sharapova since she was 16? Lot's of questions...
I really hope we don't have any more bans and that all sports remain clean.
