In sharp contrast to the spirit of sport, Maria Sharapova, the famous Tennis player, was banned for two years following a failed drugs test at the Australian Open. Sharapova was taking Mildronate also known as Meldonium, and had been taking it for years. The controversy surrounding the issue is because the drug wasn’t a banned substance until this year – but Sharapova claimed to have missed that memo and was thus still taking it when she was tested.
