Russia awaits IAAF decision on Rio Olympics

The global governing body for track and field has barred the Russian track and field team from the Summer Olympics in Rio because of widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs and a lack of effort to clean up their athletes, according to the New York Times.

Ultimately, the fate of the team will be determined by the International Olympic Committee. However, as the Times notes, the IOC typically defers to the governing bodies of individual sports.

Russia has been banned from international competitions for the past seven months after the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) accused Russia of what the Times describes as "an elaborate government-run doping program."

There is some feeling that the IOC could still allow athletes to compete who have never tested positive. However, whistle-blowers have alleged that many of the steroid users have never tested positive.

This would be the first time that an entire nation was barred from an Olympic sport because of doping.
