Russia banned from London World Athletics Championships
09 February 2017 Current Affairs: Russia has been barred from international competition since November 2015 following a damaging report alleging that state-sponsored doping was rife in the country.

The ban had already been extended in March and then June 2016, preventing Russia’s athletes from competing at the Rio Olympics.

Russian athletes will be allowed to compete under a neutral flag in the world championships provided they can prove to the IAAF that they have been tested regularly outside Russia. 

Thirty-five athletes have already applied to the governing body of international athletics for approval.
