Sharapova's failed drug test 网球运动员莎拉波娃未通过药检

文字稿

运动时装品牌耐克宣布暂停与俄罗斯网球运动员莎拉波娃的合作。莎拉波娃在新闻发布会上宣布她没有通过今年初在澳大利亚网球公开赛期间的兴奋剂检测。请听  BBC  记者 Richard Conway 发回的报道。

Winning Wimbledon aged just 17 made Maria Sharapova a global star. And for the last 11 years the five-times Grand Slam winner has been the highest-paid woman in sport. That, however, is about to change.

Her admission that she took a banned substance, a heart drug called meldonium, has prompted several of her blue-chip corporate backers, such as Nike and Porsche, to distance themselves.

Meldonium was placed on the list of banned drugs by WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, in January. It's usually prescribed for conditions such as angina, but in healthy people it boosts athletic endurance and recovery rates.

Maria Sharapova claims a family doctor legally prescribed it to her for over ten years and she was unaware it was prohibited. But the former head of WADA, Dick Pound, believes there can be no excuses.
