Athletics: Death Of Lamine Diack

Lamine Diack, patron of African athletics for many decades, then brought to the head of the international athletics federation, died on the night of Thursday to Friday in Dakar. The announcement was made by his son.

His name, intimately linked to African and world athletics, has been splashed in recent years by court convictions for his involvement in doping and corruption cases.

Lamine Diack, who led the International Athletics Federation between 1999 and 2015, had been detained in France for years because of an alleged corruption case around doping in Russia. 

He was sentenced on September 16, 2020, in Paris, in particular for having hidden doping cases in Russia or delaying sanctions against doped Russian athletes in exchange for funding and for promoting sponsorship and broadcasting negotiations with Russia.
