Conference season is truly hotting up and this week we are managing two global conferences, the first commencing the morning and running across five days, with 25 speaker sessions, breakout rooms, networking sessions and panel discussions. The event has attracted hundreds of professional delegates looking to explore and unpick the hottest topics and biggest questions in their field.
The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) has suspended former Secretary General Nick Davies. The move is linked with the doping scandal surrounding Russian athletics and former IAAF president Lamine Diack.
Nick Davies, who was chief-of-staff to International Association of Athletics Federations President Seb Coe, was suspended along with his wife Jane Boulter-Davies and IAAF medical manager Pierre-Yves Garnier.
Davies stood down from his role six months ago pending the investigation into a “potential breach of the IAAF’s code of ethics”, and at the time denied any wrongdoing.
Davies, his wife, an IAAF education official, and Garnier did not immediately respond to email requests for comment. The IAAF said it had not received a response to the suspensions from any of the trio.
