MOSCOW, February 14. /TASS/. The All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) filed with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) petitions requesting to allow 16 national track and field athletes to take part in the international competitions in the neutral status, an official with ARAF told TASS on Tuesday.

The Russian athletics body earlier filed six similar petitions with the world’s governing body of track and field athletics.

"The IAAF Taskforce asked us (ARAF) to file requests regarding each athlete individually," Alexander Parkin, the head of the ARAF anti-doping department, said in an interview with TASS.

"Besides the six previously forwarded requests, we have filed 16 more of them with the IAAF," Parkin added.

As of today, a total of 41 Russian national track and field athletes submitted their requests with the IAAF asking for permission to compete in international competitions in the status of neutral athletes.

In early January, the IAAF issued criteria, which Russian track and field athletes should meet in order to file applications for participating in international competitions as neutral athletes. All applications must be submitted with the IAAF via ARAF.
