Maria Sharapova Won't Be Winning A Gold Medal Anytime Soon
A decision on her suspension from tennis has been pushed back to September.By Ryan Biek | July 11, 2016
Maria Sharapova won't have a chance at an Olympic gold medal this August.
The tennis star is fighting a two-year ban for doping, and a ruling was supposed to be ready as soon as next week. Instead, Sharapova and the International Tennis Federation have agreed to push the decision back to September.
That means the Russian tennis star will definitively be sitting out of the 2016 Summer Olympics that begin in August.
