Indian athletes kicked out of commonwealth games over syringe allegations: ‘They can’t help themselves’
Ten우리카지노nis icon Roger Federer and former Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova have both been kicked out of Commonwealth Games for having tainted syringes.
Federer, 32, is facing charges of supplying syringes to match-fixing players, which could lead to up to seven years’ jail. He has pleaded not guilty and will take the case to court next month.
Sharapova is facing charges of supplying banned drugs and has pleaded not guilty to two counts of supplying banned drugs. The case is on hold pending the outcome of an official inquiry led by police Scotland.
The pair are among 12 athletes at Rio Olympics in which officials have stepped in to deal with doping allegations. Four have been banned from all sport but Sharapova is not on the Olympic team and will be unable to compete at this year’s Games in August.
However, Sharapova, 32, has said she plans to seek revenge after losing the 2016 Australian Open.
Sharapova told ESPN: ‘I’ll take it to court but I didn’t put anything in a syringe when I went to the games and when I went back, I didn’t put anything in a syringe at all. So, in the end, if I lose a tennis match and I have to fight my case to the end, that’s where I want to go.’

Federer, a four-time US Open champion, faces charges of making a prohibited substance – the same substance that’s being tested for in Russia for which Serena Williams has been barred from the next world tour finals.
Sharapova, 37, has had a chequered professional life before the Rio Olympics. She has broken her hand, torn her spleen and has had several run-ins with police.
