Twitter Reactions: Maria Sharapova banned for two years by ITF

Maria Sharapova's ban reduced to 15 months

Maria Sharapova was tested positive for Meldonium, at the Australian Open in January this year. The drug was outlawed by WADA with effect from January 1, after they found out that in some capacities, the drug might be used by athletes for performance enhancing. Since then she had been provisionally banned, but today on 8th June 2016 it was declared that she would be banned for two years backdated to 26 January 2016.

Sharapova admitted the use of drug for a decade for medical purposes and was unaware that it had been banned from 2016, as she knew it by another name – Mildronate.

But nothing surpasses the rules and regulations set up by ITF.
Here is the official post by Maria Sharapova on her Facebook account.
