Berlin (dpa) - A chronology of revelations about systematic doping in Russian sport, and corruption affecting the global athletics body IAAF.

December 3, 2014 - German broadcaster ARD alleges systematic doping, the cover-up of controls and corruption in Russian sport. It provides secret recordings and witness statements.

December 4 - In response, International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach promises a crackdown.

December 12 - Gabriel Dolle resigns as director of the IAAF anti-doping unit.

December 16 - Former World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) boss Dick Pound leads a three-person independent committee to investigate the allegations made of doping in elite Russian sport.

January 20, 2015 - The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) suspends five walkers, including three Olympic champions, for drug violations.

February 16 - Athletics governing body IAAF president Lamine Diack admits there is a "serious crisis" in relation to the allegations of doping in Russian sport.

February 17 - Valentin Balakhnichev resigns as head of the Russian Athletics Federation and is replaced by Vadim Zelichenok.

July 16 - Russia withdraws the entire walking team from the August worlds in Beijing.

August 2 - ARD and the British paper Sunday Times say they have a list of 12,000 blood values from 5,000 runners taken from 2001-2012 at Olympic Games and World Championships. It includes 800 athletes with results that indicate doping.

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.

August 19 - Briton Sebastian Coe is elected new IAAF president.

November 4 - Lamine Diack is charged by French prosecutors and is accused of bribery and money laundering, along with his son Papa Massata Diack, his lawyer Habib Cisse and Dolle.

November 6 - French prosecutor Eliane Houlette alleges Lamine Diack accepted more than 1 million euros (1.1 million dollars) during his time in office to cover up positive doping samples.

November 9 - The WADA independent committee issues a report and recommends the IAAF should suspend Russia from competition, and that five athletes and five coaches be given lifetime doping bans.

November 10 - WADA suspend accreditation of the Moscow doping laboratory. IOC calls on IAAF and WADA "to consider all necessary action to be taken to protect the clean athletes and rebuild trust."

November 11 - The elder Diack resigns as IOC honorary member and president of the International Athletics Foundation.

November 13 - The IAAF provisionally suspends the Russian federation from international events for an indefinite period, including the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

November 19 - The IAAF sets out five principals Russia must meet to be reinstated, with verification to be carried out by the IAAF.

November 26 - Russia accepts full suspension by IAAF and pledges to co-operate.

December 22 - Coe‘s office director and former IAAF spokesman, Nick Davies, steps down over emails ahead of the 2013 worlds suggesting plans to delay Russian doping offenders.

January 7, 2016 - Papa Massata Diack is banned for life by the IAAF ethics commission, along with Balakhnichev and Russian coach Alexei Menikov. Former IAAF anti-doping chief Gabriel 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 the conspiracy and corruption that took place. It said the IAAF council, which included new president Coe, could not have been unaware of the extent of doping in athletics, the level of nepotism in the IAAF and showed a lack of appetite to confront Russia.

May 12 - The former head of the Moscow anti-doping lab, Gregori Rochenkov, tells the New York Times he was part of systematic manipulation of doping test results of Russian athletes at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. He says 15 Russian medallists were doped.

May 28 - The Russian Olympic Committee says eight of its athletes are among 23 who have tested positive in retests of the 2012 London Olympics. Russia said earlier that it also had 14 athletes from 31 caught in retests of 2008 samples from Beijing.

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

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

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 if they prove they were not doped.

July 18 - WADA says state-controlled doping in Russia benefited athletes at summer and winter Olympics over at least a four-year period, and suggests that the IOC look into banning all Russian athletes from the Rio Games.

July 21 - CAS dismisses the appeals of Russian track and field athletes and the nation‘s Olympic Committee against the IAAF ban, keeping them out of Rio Games.

July 24 - The IOC decides against banning all Russian athletes from the Olympics, leaving the decision to the international federations under strict criteria that are laid down by the IOC. But whistleblower Yulia Stepanova is not allowed to Rio because she doped herself.

August 4 - The IOC confirms 271 Russian athletes are eligible to compete in Rio, but CAS rules the IOC cannot ban two rowers on the basis of previous doping sanctions and says governing body FISA must reconsider their cases.
