IAAF head Coe set for another grilling by British lawmakers

A BBC documentary claimed Sebastian Coe, elected president of the IAAF last August, may have misled a British parliamentary committee as to when he first knew about the Russian doping scandalEmbattled world athletics supremo Sebastian Coe will face another session with British lawmakers to explain potentially damaging allegations made in a television documentary, it was claimed Friday. A BBC documentary claimed Coe, elected president of the International Association of Athletics Federations last August, succeeding the now disgraced Lamine Diack, may have misled a parliamentary committee as to when he first knew about the Russian doping scandal and allegations of corruption against IAAF officials. Coe said he had not opened an email attachment which contained an explosive allegation by the agent of Russian marathon runner Lilya Shobukhova that she had been blackmailed by Russian and IAAF officials including Papa Missata Diack, Diack’s son, to the tune of 450,000 euros (£356,000, $505,000) over a failed dope test.
