IAAF willing to offer advice to international sports federations
The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has said that it is willing to offer assistance to other sporting federations following the decision made yesterday by the International Olympic Committee to allow individual sporting governing bodies to decide if Russian competitors can take part in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
The IAAF has made the move `given that it was the first sports federation to have been through this course of action and said it was ready to offer assistance to other international federations going through this process.
IAAF President Sebastian Coe said: "We have created and been through the process. We know how hard it is emotionally and rationally to get the process right. I have offered the help of the IAAF team to ASOIF and we continue to stand by to assist and offer advice to any international sports federations."
