 The Federation of Athletics has extended the ban! Russia has not won the World Athletics Championships for two consecutive years


A few days ago, the Associated Press reported that data submitted by Moscow Laboratory to the World Doping Agency (WADA) had been manipulated and tampered with before. This also means that Russian anti-doping agencies are suspected of cheating and fear heavy penalties.

On December 4, the IAAF announced that the ban on Russian track and field teams would be extended to 2019 because they had not received samples of athletesdoping tests submitted by the Russian side at that time.

In summary, all the signs indicate that it is still difficult for Russia to resume its qualifications on a large scale. Anderson, head of IAAFs Russian investigation team, said: We know of allegations of data manipulation and are conducting an investigation. In view of this, the IAAF Council unanimously agreed not to resume the qualification of Russian track and field for the time being.

Since the Russian Federation of Athletics was exposed in 2015 to the large-scale use of doping, Russian track and field athletes have been banned from playing on behalf of the national team. The ban still shows signs of being difficult to loosen, and now Russian athletes will miss the Doha World Championship.

Russian authorities deny the existence of a state-sponsored doping programme, but have accepted the participation of senior officials in providing athletes with prohibited drugs, interfering with anti-doping procedures and concealing positive testing.

As early as the middle of this month, IAAF rejected a total of 18 Russian athletes, including high jumper Anna Chicherova and Walker Yelena Rushmanova. Other doping-sanctioned athletes, including 400-metre athlete Antonina Corivoshapka, 800-metre athlete Ekaterina Postogova and former world indoor triple jump champion Ekaterina Corneva, were also rejected. In another statement, however, the IAAF has allowed 11 other Russian athletes to compete. The IAAF review team reviewed their drug testing records and made them immune from the Russian ban on international competitions. These include six current Russian national champions who can compete as neutral players in this years Doha World Athletics Championships.
