Poor little rich girl
Of course it's not an excuse, but I feel sorry for her and those others since I'm sure it's just a silly human mistake.
I really can't believe that any elite athlete would want to knowingly risk a career-ending ban just because of some meldonium. It's not EPO, HGH or testosterone. It's impact on performance is rather insignificant compared to other drugs.
She made $29 million last year according to Forbes. But she doesn't have a coach, doctor, agent, trainer, etc. who keeps track of these things and tells her what drugs are banned? I find that hard to believe.
