How the mighty have fallen.

Maria Sharapova probably didn’t see herself falling from grace as we entered 2016, but in just three short months she’s already become the most controversial star in all of tennis!

The 28-year-old Olympic silver medalist’s suspension goes into effect on March 12 and she’s already been dropped to varying degrees by Nike, Porsche, and TAG Heuer, but now the people behind the decision to make Meldonium an illegal performance enhancing drug in 2016 are speaking out against her.

Well this is bad!

Tennis star Maria Sharapova was busted for a drug called meldonium on Monday — and now, a Russian speed skater has been nabbed by an anti-doping agency for traces of the very same drug in HIS system!

World champion speed skater Pavel Kulizhnikov failed his doping test, according to the athlete’s coach, Dmitry Dorofeev — but the coach refused to say when or where the skater tested positive for the drug.

The World Anti-Doping Agency added the drug on their banned list on January 1, and while Dorofeev claims that Kulizhnikov took it last year before it became banned, it’s not clear whether he did it knowingly after the first of the year.

Either way, the speed skater has to serve a doping ban now — and the five world championship gold medals he’s won since the start of 2015 are just going to have to sit on the shelf!

For what it’s worth, Kulizhnikov also served a doping ban from 2012 to 2014, after he tested positive for a separate drug… so, yeah…

This drug is becoming a real problem!
