Former Athletics Namibia president Frank Fredericks was this week announced as a member of the IAAF Inspection Team to determine the qualification for membership of the IAAF by the All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF).
The IAAF Inspection Team, which will verify the reforms programme in Russia to enable the ARAF to gain re-acceptance for IAAF membership, is led by an independent Chair, Rune Andersen, a Norwegian international anti-doping expert.
Aside from Frank Fredericks, the team also include three other IAAF Council Members: Abby Hoffman (CAN), Anna Riccardi (ITA) and Geoff Gardner (NFI).
Prior to joining WADA in 2002, Rune Andersen served as head of the Department for Ethics, Sports Medicine, and Anti-Doping at the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports (NIF) and was Member of the Monitoring Group for the Council of Europe’s Anti-Doping Convention.
