Namibia's former Olympic sprinter Frankie Fredericks will be part of the the IAAF inspection team to check on Russian athletics reforms.

The team is being led by Norway's anti-doping specialist Rune Andersen and four IAAF council members have also been appointed following the doping scandal which has seen Russia provisionally suspended from international competition by athletics' world governing body.

Andersen and Fredericks will be joined by Abby Hoffman, the Canadian IAAF anti-doping task force since 2004, Italy's Anna Riccardi and Geoff Gardner from Norfolk Island, a former chairman of the IOC Athletes' Commission.
