Final warning for Russian athletics

Athletics’ global governing body said Saturday it had given the Russian federation an additional five months to produce a comprehensive plan to fight doping and be reinstated to the sport or face expulsion.

World Athletics had originally given the Russian federation (RUSAF) until the end of this month to come up with the plan but it has now set a new deadline of March 1, 2021. World Athletics said it was granting Russia more time because “RUSAF currently does not have the resources available to produce a detailed and appropriate plan for reinstatement”.
