Russia to appeal IAAF suspension at CAS

(INSIDE THE GAMES)┬áThe Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) has announced it is appealing the International Association of Athletics Federations’ (IAAF) decision to continue its suspension.

RusAF will file its appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), according to Reuters.

They have been suspended since November 2015 when the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) found evidence through an Independent Commission of state-sponsored doping and cover ups.

In July, the IAAF decided to extend RusAF’s suspension until their next council meeting in December.

The IAAF has its own taskforce investigating Russia’s compliance, which is set to report back its latest findings at December’s meeting.
