Coe not prepared to risk any action that might imperil clean athletes

Lord Coe says he will not "risk or imperil the careers of clean athletes" regarding Russian athletes wishing to compete in international events.

In a PA exclusive interview, the World Athletics president discusses how athletes from Russia wanting to compete in sporting events signed up to the World Anti-Doping Agency code will need to prove that they and their coaches are not implicated in the manipulation and deletion of Moscow laboratory data, in order to protect clean athletes.
