IAAF maintains ban on Russian athletes over doping

Vastavam web: The IAAF said on Monday that it will maintain its ban on Russian athletes over doping that it imposed in 2015, following a council meeting of top officials in Qatar. Rune Andersen, head of the doping task force for athletics’ world body, said two outstanding issues remained — the examination of data received from the Moscow anti-doping lab and the issue of costs being sought by Russia because of the scandal.
