August 6 - A doping ban served by Liliya Shobukhova, a Russian winner of major global marathons, is extended by 14 months to March 2016. Shobukhova said in the ARD documentary she paid 450,000 euros (480,000 dollars) to cover up a positive test and compete at the London 2012 Olympics.

November 9 - The WADA independent committee publishes its report on doping in Russian elite sport. It recommends the IAAF should suspend Russia from competition, and that five athletes and five coaches be given lifetime doping bans.

January 7, 2016 - Papa Massata Diack is banned for life by the IAAF ethics commission over the Shobukhova allegations, along with Balakhnichev and Russian coach Alexei Menikov. Dolle is banned for five years.

January 14 - The WADA independent committee publishes the second part of its report. It says former IAAF president Diack "was responsible for organizing and enabling the conspiracy and corruption that took place." It said the IAAF council, which included now president Coe, could not have been unaware of the extent of doping in athletics, the level of nepotism in the IAAF and showed "an evident lack of political appetite ... to confront Russia."

June 15 - In another report, WADA says that 736 planned doping tests in Russia were thwarted through various means between February 19 and May 29. It said doping inspectors were obstructed, with reports of intimidation by agents from Russia‘s FSB security service, samples were tampered with and athletes attempted to cheat during tests.

June 17 - The IAAF says Russia‘s track and field team will be banned from taking part in the summer Olympic Games. However, athletes who can prove that they are clean can apply to compete in Rio de Janeiro as "neutral" competitors. Any individual athlete who has made an extraordinary contribution to the fight against doping in sport should also be able to apply for permission to compete.

June 21 - Russian officials say its clean athletes would appeal the IAAF ruling at the CAS if they can‘t compete at Rio Games. The IOC opens the door for some Russian athletes to compete at the Rio Games under the Russian flag - rather than a neutral flag - if they prove they were not doped.

July 11 - Sharapova‘s last chance of appearing at the Olympic Games ends when CAS says it would return a verdict on her appeal against a doping ban in September.
