Authorised Neutral Athlete (ANA) is the category under which Russian athletes can compete at international competitions after the doping scandal which first came to light in December 2014.

A total of 30 athletes competed as neutrals at the 2018 European Athletics Championships. A total of 29 athletes competed as neutrals at the 2019 World Championships in Doha.
