MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) will immediately proceed to the the cancellation of the results and the redistribution of medals of six Russian athletes on the basis of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decision as soon as it receives an approval of the International Olympic Committee, the association said in a press release Thursday.

Earlier, on Thursday, according to the CAS decision, the team of the Russian athletes was devoid of two London Olympic medals, and two medals gained at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu.

"The IAAF will immediately proceed to the effective disqualification of results, re-rankings and reallocation of medals in all competitions under its control. With respect to the Olympic Games, the IAAF will inform the International Olympic Committee of the CAS decisions and request the disqualification of results and the reallocation of medals," the press release said.

Six international-level Russian athletes, including Olga Kaniskina, Yuliya Zaripova, Sergey Bakulin, Valeriy Borchin, Vladimir Kanaykin and Sergey Kirdyapkin, had initially been charged by the IAAF as they had been found guilty of a doping offense.
