Sprinter Kristina Sivkova Is Among The Three Cleared Russian Athletes

Pole vaulter Anzhelika Sidorova, sprinter Kristina Sivkova and hammer thrower Aleksei Sokirskii all met the “exceptional eligibility criteria”.

Russia’s athletics federation remains suspended from international competition after claims of state-sponsored doping.

Sidorova, Sivkova and Sokirskii would compete as neutral athletes.

Their participation in competitions is still subject to approval by the organizers of individual events.

The three could compete in the European Indoor Championships in Belgrade and European Throwing Cup next month.

Long jumper Darya Klishina and sprinter Yulia Stepanova had previously been declared eligible and will remain so.
