Authorised Neutral Athletes (ANA) is the category under which Russian athletes can compete at international competitions after the doping scandal which first came to light in December 2014.[1][2]

In April 2017 at IAAF World Championships in Athletics of London 2017, the International Association of Athletics Federations approved the participation of a group of 19 Russian athletes.[3]

A total of eight athletes competed as neutrals at the 2018 IAAF World Indoor Championships.[4]
