Only a day after provisionally suspending the Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF) from international competition the world governing body of track and field (IAAF) may also find itself on the outer ahead of the Rio Olympic games in 2016.

The WADA Independent Commission (IC), that this week released a damning report on alleged systemic doping in Russia, told ABC NewsRadio suspension of the IAAF is an option for them when they release part two of their report, expected at the end of the year.

"Well that might well be some of the recommendations that come forward when we do the second phase of our report," Commissioner Richard McLaren said.

"We haven't even revealed our findings in relation to the IAAF because of the ongoing sensitivities of the criminal investigation but we will be doing that in the next report and I think I need to leave it at that."
