MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. A monitoring delegation from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) begins on Monday its two-day inspection visit to Moscow on the process of reformations in the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF).
On December 11, 2015 the IAAF published a final list of recommendations, under which ARAF should be reformed. IAAF said at the time that members of the coordinating committee headed by Gennady Aleshin should hold regular meeting with the IAAF Taskforce so as to assess efficiency of ARAF reforming and to outline the next steps.
The IAAF Taskforce was set up in mid-November with the aim to reform the ARAF, which was in the focus of numerous doping scandals over the last year. The first visit of the Taskforce to Russia to see the results of the ongoing reformations in the ARAF was scheduled for January 11-12.
The Taskforce is headed by its Independent Chair Rune Andersen alongside IAAF Council’s members - Abby Hoffman, the Assistant Deputy Minister for the Strategic Policy Branch at Health Canada, Anna Riccardi, a Technical Delegate for the Rio Olympic Games and Italy’s National Olympic Committee’s Head of Team Services Sport and Olympic Programme Area, Frank Fredericks from Namibia, a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Chairman of the IAAF Athletes’ Commission, and Geoff Gardner, the president of the Oceania Athletics Association (Norfolk Island).
