IAAF reaction to allegations broadcast in new TV documentary

Monaco, Dec 7, 2014: The IAAF has seen a new documentary on German TV channel ARD on 7 December 2014 (part of the programme “SportSchau”) which includes a number of allegations involving doping in Russian athletics, as well as individuals from outside Russia.

As was the case for the documentary broadcast by the same channel on 3 December, a transcript in English of this latest documentary will be forwarded to the independent IAAF Ethics Commission, which has already started an investigation into matters which were exposed in both documentaries.

For more information about the IAAF Ethics Commission please go to:

The transcript will also be forwarded to all relevant individuals mentioned in the programme and they will be asked to respond to the specific allegations made against each of them.

The transcript has also been sent to all Members of the IAAF Council.

Finally, with regard to new material revealed in the documentary related to anti-doping, and therefore outside the scope of the Ethics Commission, these will be added to the IAAF investigation that is already under way in full co-operation with WADA. —- IAAF
