Association of the sports press called for the cancellation of all world records in athletics

The President of the International sports press Association (AIPS) Gianni Merlo wrote an open letter to the President of the International Association of athletics federations (IAAF) , Sebastian CoE, in which he urged the Association to reset all world records.

This was reported in the official press release of AIPS, reports Znaj.ua.

As noted in the release, the fight against doping in athletics has gone so far that many of the Champions who set records, turned out to be violators of anti-doping rules, their results were cancelled.

According to Merlot, reset of records will allow to give new hope to young athletes that they will be able to enter the history of the sport without doping.

Earlier, the IAAF has temporarily suspended the Russian athletics Federation after the independent Commission WADA has accused Russia of numerous anti-doping rule violation. So Russian athletes missed the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.
