Russia: Athletics chief steps down amid WADA corruption accusations

Federación Rusa, Moscow
23 noviembre 2019 a las 13:53 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

President of the All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF) Dmitri Shliakhtin announced his resignation in Moscow on Saturday following new allegations he obstructed investigations into doping.

"I have now handed over my letter of resignation to the board. Now the board will elect the first vice-president, who will act as the President of the All-Russian [Athletic] Federation. All other questions will be considered by the Russian Olympic Committee working group on Monday and on Wednesday in the Ministry of Sports," he said.

Shliakhtin is alleged to have use fake medical papers and was already suspended by ARAF.

The investigation stems from the doping scandal which broke in 2015, in which several Russian athletes were accused of substituting doping samples.

German TV channel ARD then conducted its own investigations. After its publication, the scandal received worldwide publicity and RUSADA (the Russian Anti-Doping Agency) was stripped of its accreditation.

ARAF's World Athletics Association membership was also suspended in 2015.
