Great Idea, can't see it happening though.

I certainly think any money they won should be seized, but see no reason to ever allow them to compete again, especially that slimy Sarakapova

Sports are a waste of time now, there are too many undetectable drugs. Money has ruined most sport anyway.

totally agree that performance enhancing drugs should never be allowed...if you cant win win competitions without them then you are not being true to yourself and there is no place for cheats in any sport..having said that i do feel sorry for maria sharapova who failed a drugs test in janurary...this was for taking medication to help the heart circulation..it is not a performance enhancing drug...her only mistake was not paying more attention to the list of banned drugs and she will have to pay for that as rules are rules...in this instance i do hope her punishment is not too harsh...

I felt sorry for her to start with but after some thought I decided that she had been cheating for years and shouldn't have been in professional sports at all.
She has an obligation to check the banned substances list religiously, especially as she knows she is taking medication. She either failed to do this or chose to try and get away with it.
Either way she has been benefitting from it for ten years whilst doing remarkably well in sport for an ill person.

The Latvian drug she takes is called Meldonium. Sharapova claims she takes it to treat Diabetes and low magnesium, for which it has no medical benefits.
Meldonium is designed to treat Ischemia and Angina, it increases blood and oxygen flow to the heart.

Sharapova isn't alone, there are dozens of professional athletes who have or are taking it, they can't all have Ischemia or Angina, if they did they would never be fit enough to be an athlete in the first place.
In my opinion they take it for the very reason it has been banned, which is that it may be a performance enhancing drug that can be taken for legitimate reasons by people with a heart condition and therefore less likely to be looked upon with suspicion.
