IAAF opens bids to reallocate events after Russia's suspension

World Junior Championships 2014
The IAAF World Junior Championships were last held in Eugene, Oregon in 2014

The IAAF has reopened the bidding to find alternative hosts for two events, following Russia's suspension from international athletics competition.

The country's athletics federation was banned after a World Anti-Doping Agency independent commission alleged "state-sponsored doping".

Russia was due to host the World Race Walking Team Championships and the World Junior Championships in 2016.

Countries must register their interest in hosting the events by 7 December.

The IAAF will then vote on which city will host the events on 7 January.
