IAAF has met with Russia's anti-doping agency RUSADA to get Russian athletes "back on the track" but their goal is still far from reality.
The IAAF has refused to lift Russia's suspension from international track and field. The athletics world governing body said Russia had still not done enough to clamp down on doping.
The International Olympic Committee has banned 22 Russians for life for doping, with three bobsledders the latest to be sanctioned on Wednesday. But a German lawyer defending one doper says all is not what it seems.
Nineteen Russian athletes have now been banned for life from the Olympic Games for doping. The International Olympic Committee will decide next week whether Russia can compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
Some Russian athletes will be allowed to compete as neutrals at the Pyeongchang Winter Games in 2018, the International Olympic Committee announced on Tuesday. But the IOC has suspended the Russian Olympic Committee.
