French Judges Investigate Athletics Corruption

PARIS, March  – French judges investigating corruption in Athletics have extended their probe to the conditions under which the 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games were awarded, according to France’s Financial Prosecutor.

“We are looking at these elements, but at this stage it is a question of verification. Nothing has been proved,” said a prosecutor’s office official, confirming a report in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper.

Allegations of corruption in the sport which emerged last year have so far been focused on mainly events organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

The French investigation was opened in December in response to media reports that questioned the way the IAAF awarded its 2021 championships to the U.S. City of Eugene.

World athletics has also been shaken in recent months by a wider corruption and doping scandal.
