Banned Tennis Player Maria Sharapova To Miss Rio Olympics

A ruling on Maria Sharapova’s appeal against her two-year doping ban has been postponed until September, ruling her definitively out of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The court of arbitration for sport said that Sharapova and the International Tennis Federation had agreed to defer the decision, which had been due to be issued by next Monday.

Sharapova filed an appeal last month, seeking to overturn or reduce the suspension imposed by the ITF. She tested positive for meldonium at the Australian Open in January. The ban, announced in June by the ITF, was deemed to have commenced on 26 January, the day she failed a test for the recently banned drug after losing to Serena Williams in the quarter-finals in Melbourne. Sharapova has not played since, although she has maintained a high profile at public appearances to promote her confectionery business. While admitting she had failed the test, Sharapova has maintained since that she took the drug before it was banned and for health reasons only, on the advice of her doctor over a 10-year period.

It also found that, whether legal or not, Sharapova had deliberately concealed her use of meldonium from the authorities, who require athletes to declare all frequently used medications, as well as from her own coaches and team.
