According to a report by Reuters, on Sunday, global athletics governing body IAAF extended its ban on Russia's athletics federation and said that Reuters findings regarding banned Russian coaches continuing to work with athletes would be investigated. In November of 2015, Russia's athletics federation was suspended after a report commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency found evidence of widespread doping. Rune Andersen, chairman of the IAAF task force overseeing Russia’s reinstatement efforts, said that the Athletic Integrity Unit would be looking into Reuters findings that two Russian athletics coaches and one doctor banned for doping continue to work with athletes. Andersen told a news conference in Monaco that the situation, "calls into question whether Rusaf (Russia’s athletics federation) is able to enforce doping bans and whether all Rusaf athletes have embraced the change to a new anti-doping culture proclaimed by Rusaf, both of which are conditions to reinstatement.”
