The IAAF said it has yet to receive any of the data.A total of 64 Russians have neutral status for 2019, of which 45 had the same status last year.

Of the six Russians who won world championship medals as neutrals in 2017, two have since been stripped of that status.ADVERTISEMENT Rogue cops marked as Gamboa’s targets in his appointment as PNP chief Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying FILE – In this file photo dated Thursday, June 6, 2013, Russia’s Yelena Sokolova competes in the women’s long jump event at the Golden Gala IAAF athletic meeting, in Rome’s Olympic stadium.
