Russia warned by IAAF and IPC bans will not automatically be lifted following WADA decision to make them compliant

Russia have been warned by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and International Paralympic Committee (IPC) not to expect their bans by those organisations to be automatically lifted following the decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to lift their suspension on the country.

The IAAF were the first organisation to suspend Russia in November 2015 following allegations of state-sponsored doping and the IPC banned them on the eve of the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

That suspension was also extended to this year's Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang.
