The international Association of athletics federations (IAAF) on Monday, March 11, at a meeting in Doha extended the disqualification of the all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla).
This is the tenth extension of the suspension, which lasts more than three years.
Citing another decision, the IAAF Council announced that wfla has not complied with the two requirements necessary to return the membership of the international Federation. First, while the IAAF were not compensated for the costs associated with the proceedings of the “Russian” doping scandal. Secondly, the Association has not had time to analyze a database of the Moscow anti-doping laboratory, access to which was only in January (when that was supposed to get to the end of 2018).
The head of the working Committee for restoration of wfla rune Andersen, quoted by TASS, said that “when conditions of recovery are fulfilled, we will recommend to the Council to restore the” Russian Federation. “We have no time frame, it can be as before the world Cup, and after,” — said the official. The next world Cup in athletics must pass here in the Qatari capital Doha from September 28 to October 6, 2019.
TASS recalls that on 22 January 2019, the part of the criteria for restoration of membership of the club in the International Association of athletics federations was performed. This was due to the fact that the Executive Committee of the world anti-doping Agency (WADA) has confirmed the compliance of the Russian anti-doping Agency (RUSADA) to his code.
The membership of the Russian athletics Federation IAAF was suspended in November 2015 as a result of investigation conducted by the Board of WADA. This suspension, among other things, does not allow Russian athletes to participate in international competitions under the flag of Russia.
