With the Russian Athletics Federation banned for 2016, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) are re-allocating two events. Decision are due on January 7th.

Following confirmation last week of the full suspension of the Russian IAAF Member Federation ARAF, the process is now underway to reallocate the 2016 IAAF World Race Walking Team Championships (Cheboksary, RUS) and 2016 IAAF World U20 (Junior) Championships (Kazan, RUS) which were originally awarded to ARAF.

IAAF Member Federations have been formally invited to submit applications to host these two events, it being understood that this will be an accelerated process to ensure maximum time available for the successful hosts to organise these two championships.
