Banned Maria Sharapova Named In Russia’s Olympic team

Russia has included Maria Sharapova in its Olympic tennis team despite the star player being suspended over a positive test for the banned drug meldonium. Questions regarding her participation at the Olympic would be resolved by the end of the first week.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) provisionally suspended Sharapova the 5 time Grand Slam champion on 12 March but World Anti-Doping Association (Wada) admitted in April that scientists were unsure how long meldonium stayed in the system so athletes who tested positive for the substance before 1 March could avoid bans.

So let’s do:
1. Expand the term Wada ?
2. Name the tennis player, Who has named in Russia’s Olympic team ?
