World Athletics will return money to Russian athletes whose applications for neutral status in 2022 were not considered.
According to the press service of the All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF), the organization has entered into an agreement with World Athletics to return the funds that athletes paid when submitting an application.
Among those to whom the funds will be returned are all-around athlete Ilya Shkurenev, world championship medalist in the 110-meter hurdles Sergei Shubenkov and 55 other athletes.
In 2015, World Athletics deprived RusAF of its membership. The organization’s council restored the status of ARAF in March. However, he extended the suspension of track and field athletes from Russia due to the situation in Ukraine.
Earlier, Olga Vovk admitted that she was skeptical about the chances of Russian athletes to return to international competitions.
