MONACO – Rus­sia’s ath­let­ics fed­er­a­tion will learn to­day whether its ban for wide­spread dop­ing, in place for the last three years, will be lifted by the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Ath­let­ics Fed­er­a­tions (IAAF).

The IAAF’S Coun­cil will vote on Rus­sia’s sta­tus af­ter hear­ing a re­port and rec­om­men­da­tion by its task force on the sport­ing power’s progress in meet­ing con­di­tions laid down for re­in­state­ment.

A 1300 GMT press con­fer­ence has been sched­uled in Monaco to an­nounce the de­ci­sion, with the feel­ing around the prin­ci­pal­ity seem­ing to be that the sus­pen­sion may re­main in place.

The Rus­sian fed­er­a­tion (RUSAF) was banned by the IAAF in Novem­ber 2015 af­ter a World Anti-dop­ing Agency-com­mis­sioned re­port re­vealed wide­spread dop­ing in the coun­try.
