In December 2017, the IAAF issued a simplified application process for 2017 Authorised Neutral Athletes to reapply for continued eligibility to compete in international competitions in 2018.
A total of 30 Russian athletes have so far been declared eligible to compete as Authorised Neutral Athletes in 2018. 30 applications have been denied.
The Doping Review Board is composed of Robert Hersh (chair), Sylvia Barlag and Antti Pihlakoski.
As this is an ongoing process, the IAAF will only make announcements as and when decisions are made by the Doping Review Board concerning successful applications and those athletes have been informed.
