These explanations have been circulated to the IAAF’s Doping Review Board. Following a careful review of all the documents, the Doping Review Board will reach its decision as to whether the explanations are acceptable in the next few days. If the explanations are unacceptable, in accordance with IAAF Rules, the athletes will be provisionally suspended pending a hearing before a disciplinary tribunal in Greece.
