Maria Sharapova Banned for Two Years

It is highly unfortunate and sad to hear that the talented and energetic tennis star Maria Sharapova is banned for two years. According to the 3-man panel of judges, which concluded that “she is the sole author of her own misfortune”. The decision has been taken after the clear investigations of Sharapova’s failed drug tests.

According to the investigation reports, Sharapova was taking the banned drug Meldonium. In addition, she was not just taking it for genuine medical conditions but to enhance her performance in her sports. According to the rule of law, taking the drug to enhance one’s sports performance is a clear mark of their incompetence in their sports. They can no longer be trusted to play their sport professionally.

Sharapova justified herself by telling the initial reasons for this drug consumption. According to her information, she started off ten years ago to fight recurring viral illnesses. She even had a 2006 medical prescription that justifies the drug both as a preventative agent for diabetes and cardioprotective agent.

Meldonium is added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned list at the beginning of this year. This fact clearly highlights that athletes might have been using it earlier. The drug, however, has a very extreme positive effect on energy and stamina level if it is taken before exercise. Although Sharapova has pledged to challenge the decision, so far, the decision has a negative impact on her career and stardom. The ban, nevertheless, suggested the implementation of the rule of law in sports.
