IAAF upholds ban on Russia track and field athletes in Rio Olympics

Track and field's world governing body meet Friday to decide whether to allow Russian track and field athletes to compete in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. It was decided the organization is going to uphold its ban.

The IAAF's ruling council convened in Vienna on Friday to consider whether to uphold or lift the suspension of Russia's track and field federation.

The ban was imposed in November following a report by a World Anti-Doping Agency commission that alleged state-sponsored doping, cover-ups and corruption.

Russian officials claim they have met the conditions for reinstatement, but a new WADA report issued Wednesday cited continuing obstruction and violations of drug-testing in Russia.

Even if the IAAF decides to maintain the ban on the Russian federation, it could also consider a compromise that would allow individual athletes with a proven clean doping record to compete in the games.
