The Russians are at work

No time to waste. According to Russian media reports, the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) task force agreed on a strategic plan to lift the suspension of the national body. It was prepared and written in collaboration with experts from World Athletics. At the same time, the RusAF team is working on a roadmap to accompany this reform plan demanded by World Athletics for a possible lifting of the suspension imposed on Russian athletics for more than five years. The final document should be ready at the end of January 2021. In time, therefore, to meet the conditions of World Athletics, the international body has set the RusAF the deadline of March 31 to present its reorganisation project.
