VIENNA, June 17. /TASS/. The decision of the Council of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to uphold Russia’s suspension is not political, IAAF President Sebastian Coe said on Friday.
"The decision was unanimous - politics did not play a part in that room today," Coe said.
"Some progress has been made, but not enough," he added.
The suspension means that Russian field and track athletes are currently ineligible to take part in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.
The IAAF inspection team has also said that World Anti-doping Association (WADA) whistleblower Yulia Stepanova should be allowed to compete in Rio Olympics.
The Council of the IAAF on Friday made a decision to keep in force Russia's membership’s suspension.
Russian athletes won’t be able to take part in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro unless the International Association of Athletics Federations restores Russia’s membership. However, the International Olympic Committee may decide at its June 21 session to admit Russian athletes to the Rio Olympics.
