IAAF upholds ban on Russian athletes until further notice


Content Team

Russian athletes will remain banned from international competitions until further notice, says athletics' governing body. The IAAF banned Russia in November 2015 because of the evidence of the state-sponsored doping. The ban will remain in place until samples and data from Moscow's former anti-doping laboratory are made available. Russia must also pay all costs incurred by the work of the IAAF's taskforce.
