Former International Association of Athletics Federations Communications Director, Nick Davies, has been banned from working at the sports world governing body now or in the future following an investigation by the IAAF Ethics Board into him and two other employees.

Davies, Jane Boulter-Davies and Pierre-Yves Garnier were all handed sanctions, a release from IAAF said.

Garnier received a three month suspension while Boulter-Davies received six months and having served their suspensions return to work today.

Davies however has been barred from "his role or any other role at the IAAF. He is, however, able to continue to work in athletics in other roles within other organisations."


Six-month probation


Garnier, who is the Medical & Scientific Senior Manager and Boulter-Davies Special Project Manager in the Competitions Department, will return on a six month probation with the aim of full reinstatement if probation conditions are met.

Commenting on the decision, IAAF CEO Olivier Gers said: "We thank the Ethics Board, in particular Sir Anthony Hooper, for the detailed investigation and would like to acknowledge the Ethics Board's findings that none of the individuals had any case to answer with regards to corruption and all three were commended on their efforts to ensure cheats in the sport were properly identified and brought to justice."
