IAAF Council Member Fredericks Suspended

RJR News / IAAF council member Frankie Fredericks has been provisionally suspended from athletics pending an investigation into a potential ethics violation, the sport’s governing body said on Monday. The Namibian is being investigated by the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) over payments he received from Papa Massata Diack, the son of former IAAF president Lamine Diack.

In March, French newspaper Le Monde claimed former sprinter Fredericks received a payment days before voting on the 2016 Olympics host city.

The four-time Olympic silver medallist says the payment was legitimate and related to his role in the promoting of several athletics events.
