The objective is to restore confidence and show the true valor of athletics.


During IAAF Council Meeting, held in Monte Carlo, it was confirmed the decision to suspend the ARAF (All-Russia Athletic Federation) from any competition and form an Integrity Unit. The meeting was chaired by the IAAF President Sebastian Coe.

"We have to work hard to restore confidence and show the true values and the potential of athletics. We have a unique opportunity now to face the future with optimism. We make sure to have the right people in the right place and the right structure to improve the sport, "said Sebastian Coe in his opening speech.
