World Athletics has put seven countries on its new competition manipulation watchlist.
It follows an Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) investigation into 17 reports of suspicious
results in qualification for the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Countries in question are Albania, Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
World Athletics said it will work with the countries to "improve & reform their competition procedures".
"The integrity of our sport is our first priority at World Athletics," said World Athletics president Lord Coe.
