CHEBOKSARY, June 20. /TASS/. Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva will not be able to work in the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Athletes' Commission until the All-Russia Athletic Federation (ARAF)’s membership in the world athletics governing body is restored, Secretary General of ARAF Mikhail Butov told TASS on Monday.

Isinbayeva was elected to the Athletes' Commission in August 2015.

"Now we will not be able to work in the IAAF only because we are Rusians," said Butov, whose membership in the IAAF Council has been also temporarily suspended. "Our specialists now will not be able to work as judges at international competitions. Yelena Isinbayeva now won’t be able to work in the IAAF Athletes' Commission. All of us have no rights until the AFAF’s membership in the IAAF is restored," he said.

The Council of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) decided at its session in Vienna on Friday to keep in force membership’s suspension of the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF). The suspension means that Russian field and track athletes are currently ineligible to take part in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil. In addition, the Council decided to suspend the work of all Russian citizens in the IAAF commissions, committees and other bodies.
