    The Athletics Integrity Unit, which oversees disciplinary issues in track, charged Dmitry Shlyakhtin and six others with various offenses.

    They are related to the case of a top high jumper, Danil Lysenko, who allegedly presented fake medical records after being accused of failing to make himself available for drug testing.

    Seems pretty unlikely at this point that Russia will have a track & field team at the Olympics...

    Do Shubenkov and Lasitskene (and maybe one or two pole-vaulters) stand a chance of getting exceptions for Tokyo?

    Without any new information I would assume that they could compete in Tokyo exactly as they did in Doha as ANA's.

    Bach in story posted to home page a couple of days back

    <<However, IOC president Thomas Bach indicated on Monday that he would not welcome a blanket ban from the Tokyo Olympics next year. That’s in the hands of WADA right now, and then the sanction will be finally announced by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, so it’s not in the hands of the IOC,” he said.

    “What we are concerned about ... our principle is that the guilty ones must be punished as hard as possible and the innocent ones must be protected.”>>

    I assume that when Bach referred to a blanket ban, he was referring to a ban of the entire Russian team--all sports.

    This was specific to the track federation, I don't think it will have much of an impact on other sports' eligibility, though it is certainly not helpful.

    I anticipate all of the ANA athletes will be fine, as long as they do not personally become implicated in anything.

    There has been some talk of expulsion of the Federation, but I don't think that has ever been done before? That does not seem super likely to me.

    pretty sure South Africa was "expelled" at one point by the IAAF.
