This whole case has become confusing. Is WADA analyzing each and every meldonium positive and advising international federations to lift provisional suspensions? Why is FINA silent if a provisional suspension is being lifted? There should be no secrecy about such matters. How come CAS is to decide this case even before FINA disciplinary panel has met or decided on her second doping infraction? Or has it already ruled on this case and she had appealed to CAS?
