The governing body of world athletics Friday maintained Russia's ban from track and field over mass doping, just 10 days before the start of the European Championships in Berlin.Andersen said that for Russia to be reinstated, ideally at the IAAF Council's next meeting in Monaco in December after a WADA meeting in September, there are three demands that must be met.Russia had also been banned from the Olympic movement over the doping scandal culminating at the 2014 Russian-hosted Sochi Winter Games.A team of 168 Russians competed in this year's Pyeongchang Winter Games under the neutral banner of "Olympic Athletes from Russia," although a Russian curling medalist had been tested positive for a banned substance.The International Olympic Committee then lifted its ban on Russia at the end of the Pyeongchang Olympics.
