Or is the IAAF just following the recommendation of the UK? Either or it does make sense, and it sounds fishy.
What are you talking about? I thought ht was just sick and no competing. YOu are right. They are banning him from competing.
But it's not the IAAF. It's the UK.
In my mind, the race needs to be postponed.Or let him compete with like a Rupp type face mask.
IAAF spokeswoman Jackie Brock-Doyle told BBC Sport: "It's a sad case but we have to follow process for the health and well-being of all athletes.
"All processes have been followed, clear statements released and very clear guidelines issued to team managers and doctors on Sunday.
"We can't go into details of athletes' conditions. It's better the statements and Public Health England statement stand."
