ATHLETICS- The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has voted to uphold the doping ban on Russia at a council meeting in Monaco.
Russia’s participation at the athletics World Championships in Doha has now been put in doubt. Russian athletes have not been able to compete under the national flag ever since evidence of mass state-sponsored doping was uncovered.
The World Championships will take place from 28 September to 6 October.
World Anti-Doping Authority (Wada) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) have revoked their own suspensions of Russia.
