'World Athletics' does not change its mind or position and, despite today's decision of the IOC, reiterates its no to the return of athletes from Russia and Belarus to athletics competitions.
In a statement released at the end of its board meeting in Monte Carlo, World Athletics stresses that it has taken a different position: "All athletes, support staff and officials from Russia and Belarus are excluded from all World Athletics Series events and from hosting any international or European athletics events. We will continue to monitor the situation, but unless there is a major change in circumstances between now and the Olympic Games, this exclusion will apply to Paris 2024." "It is up to the IOC to decide which countries are invited to participate in the Olympic Games, but it is the responsibility of the IFs (International Federations) to decide which athletes in their sport can compete," said a statement from the body chaired by Olympian Sebastian Coe.
