Doping Cases and Bans Thread

Meldonium used according to description is a medicament....only for short period of time. Telling us that Sharapova was using it for 10 years indicates...she has severe heart problems ;)  ;);) and she certainly didn`t use it as a "cure" ;) ;). Total bullshit by her and other Russian athletes.

Even people with real heart problems take it in short periods approved by doctors :), used longer it`s not a medicament any longer :) and Sharapova managed well as for long-time serious heart-problems person ;) :), amazingly well :d

Hopefully Lithuania will stay away from the list. After all Lithuanian Anti-doping Agency was keen on informing athletes and federation about meldonium being banned substance in sports in media and antidoping apps that athletes use. Sadly this drug is widely sold in Lithuanian pharmacies, but differently from other countries - Lithuanian Health Organization placed this drug as prescripted, so it was not so easy to get it, unless you really had health problems.

Well RUSADA apparently notified athletes as well...that didn't help much :p

I wonder if one of the other Georgians who tested positive is Geno Petriashvili, the young talent who had his 2014 world junior gold stripped for failing a test.
