Tokyo Olympics: Up to 10 Russians can compete in track and field events as neutrals

Up to 10 Russian track and field athletes will be able to compete as neutrals at the Tokyo Olympics this summer, World Athletics has confirmed.

Athletics' world governing body has reinstated a scheme allowing Russian athletes who meet anti-doping criteria to compete under a neutral flag.

The Authorised Neutral Athlete scheme was announced in March 2020, but was then suspended over further violations.
