Pole vaulter remains set on nationality switch despite potential payment of RusAF fine

Russia’s teenage pole vault star Matvey Volkov intends to continue with his nationality switch to Belarus, regardless of whether the Russian Athletics Federation (RusAF) pays a fine by the August 15 deadline set by World Athletics.

The decision followed the news that Russian athletes may be unable to compete internationally after the suspended RusAF missed a July 1 deadline to pay a fine of $6.31 million (£5 million/€5.6 million).
