Track and Field

From Staff and Wire Reports

The world governing body of track and field kept Kenyan runner John Ngugi and German sprinter Katrin Krabbe under suspension, effectively preventing them from competing at the World Outdoor Championships in August.

The International Amateur Athletic Federation, meeting in Stuttgart, Germany, made no decision on Butch Reynolds, the 400-meter world record-holder who is involved in a legal battle with the world body over a doping ban.

The IAAF wants Reynolds to drop his legal action against the world body. Reynolds was awarded $27.3 million in damages against the IAAF by a U.S. judge.
