The IAAF Athletes’ Commission has today sent a letter to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s executive committee for consideration at its meeting on September 20.

The 14th episode of this season's IAAF Inside Athletics is available to watch online now and features an exclusive interview with sprint hurdler Sergey Shubenkov.

Kenya’s Lucy Murigi successfully defended her senior title at the IAAF/WMRA World Mountain Running Championships in Andorra on Sunday (16), while Robert Chemonges led a Ugandan 1-2-3 in the senior men’s race.

The dates for the fixtures in the 2018-2019 IAAF Cross Country Permit series have been confirmed.

A masterful display of control and consistency earned Tajikistan’s 36-year-old Rio 2016 champion Dilshod Nazarov victory in the men’s hammer as Team Europe’s Wojciech Nowicki, who tops the 2018 world list with 81.85m, failed to progress beyond the first three qualifying throws.

Anything other than victory by Mariya Lasitskene would be a major upset in any high jump competition. The world and European champion has lost just one out of her last 50 competitions, and she maintained that record in Ostrava with another decisive win. Her mark of 2.00m marked the sixteenth time this year that she has cleared the two-metre...

It was clear from his very first effort in the men’s triple jump that world and Olympic champion Christian Taylor, representing Team Americas with a metaphorical joker on his back, was not going to be beaten today.

Team Europe got action on the track off to a sizzling start courtesy of Sergey Shubenkov and Pascal Martinot-Lagarde’s 1-3 finish to take double points after playing one of their two jokers in the event. But they had to work hard for it to beat Jamaica’s Commonwealth champion Ronald Levy who produced his best race of the season.

There was no surprise in the women's 800m as one of the most dominant women in global athletics took the victory with a dominating performance. Caster Semenya of South Africa led from start to finish to reach the finish in 1:54.77, barely half a second off the national record she set in Paris earlier this year.

Rising 21-year-old pole vault talent Timur Morgunov may have won European silver in a personal best of 6.00m and overall IAAF Diamond League victory in the space of the last month, but on this occasion the authorised neutral athlete had to give best to the older hands.

Running down Dafne Schippers over the final 40 metres, Shaunae Miller-Uibo extended her unbeaten streak to 10 races this season with her convincing victory in the 200m.

Abdalelah Haroun finished powerfully to take the men’s 400m title here in 44.73.

The reigning Olympic and European champion Thomas Rohler did not disappoint in the men's javelin throw. Despite having to battle hard throughout the three phases of the competition, the German came through with a best of 87.07m to beat Cheng Chao-Tsun of Chinese Taipei in the final round.

World record holder Beatrice Chepkoech of Kenya was the runaway victor in the women's 3000m steeplechase with a new Cup record of 9:07.92. The athlete from Team Africa took the lead from the gun and was never in any danger of being caught.
