I don't need to prove anything to you... I'm not WADA but WADA banned it. So tell me again why are people taking it if it does nothing and if it's for old people with heart problems?

They're just taking pills for fun, even if it doesn't help them

Take a pack and read the annotation to the drug.
It is cardioprotector. It prevents NECROSYS OF HEART TISSUE from oxygen deficiency. Which can happen to old people, to young people with heart problems, to athletes at peak strain
IT SAVES YOUR HEART FROM DAMAGE. Got it?

Probably because otherwise she'd publish a book taking jabs at them like she's done to Serena.

So it's for athletes with heart problems? I didn't realize so many of them had heart issues. Yes, I definitely got it now...

If the intention was to perform a clown, then you should not ask serious question and waste other people's time answering them

She took a jab at Russians in the book. Dementieva and her mum in particular.

2017 is probably (1-7 Bridesmaidniacki's) best level of play ever

Maybe the God sent Ostapenko into the final in order to engrave the new Simona into stone!

Vesnina; And this drug, it's nothing serious. It's old people taking it back in Russia and Soviet Union countries. It’s to help your heart to feel better in old age.
Then why would a young, elite athlete be taking it?

Quote:
"Football players, track and field, volleyball players, a lot of players were taking this thing," added Vesnina. "But it's kind of a course of rehabilitation, when you recover from a lot of hard work. For many years, it was not on the list, and all of a sudden..."

"Before the Olympics," said Makarova.

"Yeah, yeah, before the Olympics they put it on the list," said Vesnina. "So it's kind of … yeah."

This implication—that the ban was aimed at hampering Russian athletes—is reinforced by their view that there is no performance-enhancing benefit from meldonium.

"No, no, for sure," said Makarova.

"No, no," said Vesnina. "You can try it. You're not going to win the Grand Slam."
So it was banned to hamper Russian athletes but there is no performance-enhancing benefit from meldonium. If there is no performance-enhancing benefit from taking it, how would stopping Russian athletes from taking it hamper them?

If it prevents necrosys of the heart, then it's protective, not performance enhancing.

"Elena Dementieva, a Russian who traveled with her mother, was always giving me dirty looks, laser beams. Then one day her mother complained to my masseur, a Russian who worked with a lot of Russian players. She told him, ‘Elena can’t get any deals in Japan because Maria has taken them all. "

Yes, but do you really think athletes (without heart problems) are taking it to prevent necrosys of the heart?

They're always giving her the evil eye and they complained that Elena can't get any ad deals in Japan coz Sharapova takes all of them.
