That 1 mg thing is BS. Povetkin tested negative for Meldonium 3 times in early April then tested positive for less than 1 mg in late April (according to his promoter). You can probably get the effects you want just from taking the tiniest amount.

The difference presumably is that Sharapova admitted she took it after 1/Jan. Other athletes are claiming they stopped taking it months before and are being allowed some leeway as a result.

Unlike Sharapova Lepchenko for meldonium already pardoned

Anatoly Glebov, a physiotherapist who worked for many years in the team of Maria Sharapova, in an interview with "SE" expressed surprise why the people responsible for the medical support of one of the best tennis players in the world, did not take the blame. Russian has been suspended from competition for using meldonium. According to unofficial information, review "Sharapova business" could take place tomorrow (18 May).

- When the whole story of Masha turned round, I spoke with her father Yuri - Glebov said. - I said: "Why have you admitted that taking meldonium ten years ?!" Answer right, he did not; apparently afraid of wiretapping phone. But made it clear that the case involved a very serious people. And they will do anything to discourage it.

I do not know, not sure ... I do not really understand why people who are in the team Sharapova responsible for medical support, did not take the blame. Do not stood up and did not say it was my fault, I proshlyapil. Yes, it would not be left unattended, would surely have followed certain sanctions. But Masha would be taken out of the blow. Everyone knows that the star of this level can not keep track of all mail that comes to her address. This should do the staff.

I also have another question. At about the same time as Masha, meldonium was found in the body of an American tennis player originally from the former Soviet Union - Varvara Lepchenko. I talked with her dad, too, I know about it from his lips. However, the ITF has become not to make this story public. Moreover, Lepchenko already amnestied and continued his speech. If it's another drug concentration - then fine. But even in this case, the position and procedure of the International Tennis Federation should be the same.

No doubt the ITF will be rushing to test old tennis samples.

Sharapova is probably coming back, along with her sexy ass.

Quote:
Wada said: “In the case of meldonium, there is currently a lack of clear scientific information on excretion times.

“For this reason, a hearing panel might justifiably find (unless there is specific evidence to the contrary) that an athlete who has established on the balance of probabilities that he or she ingested meldonium before 1 January 2016 could not reasonably have known or suspected that the meldonium would still be present in his or her body on or after 1 January 2016.

“In these circumstances, Wada considers that there may be grounds for no fault or negligence on the part of the athlete.”

You are plain stupid.

Meldonium was NOT a forbidden substance til 12.31.2015.

If Sharapova is charged with doping (what is very far to happen), it could only be for the 15 first days of 2016.

Taking non forbidden substance is not doping.

I can give my head to be cut that 100% of the top 1000 are taking non forbidden substances that enhance athletic performance.

And another one (Khaled style) - When will be the ruling on her case? Seems like a lot of time has passed and no info at all.
Should be in the next days. Everything is going to be fine, she is "clean".

To be specific, what UKAD is investigating is the fact that they failed to act on information about Dr Bonar being a PED doctor:

Quote:
A drugs-cheat amateur cyclist who had his sentence cut by anti-doping chiefs is at the centre of explosive new claims that a doctor illegally treated 150 elite sportsmen, including Premier League footballers.

Dan Stevens, 39, is believed to be the sportsman who tipped off the UK Anti-Doping (Ukad) agency about private clinician Dr Mark Bonar who he said was prescribing performance enhancing drugs to himself and other athletes.

When it failed to act on his dossier of evidence, the source tipped off a newspaper and Dr Bonar was secretly filmed describing a network of high-profile clients, including two professional dancers on Strictly Come Dancing and squad members with Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City.

The taxpayer-funded UK Anti-Doping watchdog is now facing a Government inquiry after it emerged it was alerted about Dr Bonar in 2014.

Ukad is understood to have been handed two written prescriptions signed by Dr Bonar but officials failed to pursue the matter because he is not governed by a sporting body. They did not pass the information on to the General Medical Council.

Here's the story from Cycling Weekly in September 2015 indicating that Dan Stevens was banned for failing to provide a sample in 2014, and that he had his ban reduced in exchange for providing “valuable anti-doping information"

British doping scandal incoming?

This from the Sunday Times:
British doctor claims he doped 150 sports stars
British doctor claims he doped 150 sports stars | | The Times & The Sunday Times


The Times article is behind a paywall but I'm sure you can find summaries of it around. Much of the fuss is about footballers, but as you can see from the cutline in the photo, tennis players are mentioned among his alleged clients.

There's a hidden camera video from the investigation where Dr Mark Bonar talks to someone he thinks is an athlete about using PEDs.

Dr Bonar -- whose Twitter handle is "ZenGrifter" -- -- has denied the allegations;
