Press Release

The institutionalised and systematic doping in Russian athletics is the reason the IAAF suspended, and then upheld the suspension of, RusAF’s membership and consequently the exclusion of their athletes from international competition,” said IAAF President Sebastian Coe.

McLaren provided the IAAF with his preliminary findings which were included in the IAAF Taskforce Report and Recommendation to Council on 17 June 2016. The IAAF will of course seek further information on the 139 cases mentioned in the McLaren report and cross reference it with its own data. To the extent that actions have not, or are not, being taken we will obtain the evidence and do any necessary follow up to allow us to take the strongest actions available to us. This includes all information that has been gathered around the 2013 World Championships as we have in storage in Lausanne the samples sent to the IAAF by the Moscow laboratory.
