Anti-Doping issues to be discussed by the IWF Executive Board
Recognizing the serious consequences with regard to the reanalysis of the London 2012 and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games samples, the IWF Executive Board dedicates a full day to discuss these and other Anti-Doping related matters at its meeting in Tbilisi, GEO on 22-23 June.
Following the decisions from 2015 that already showed the strictest approach towards zero tolerance, the IWF EB aims to continue its commitment and work for a clean sport.
As a reminder, the following decisions were made by the IWF Executive Board in 2015:
- Bulgaria was banned to participate in weightlifting at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games / relevant decision confirmed by CAS
- 1 quota was withdrawn from Romania due to the multiple positive cases in the qualification period
- 1 quota was withdrawn from Uzbekistan due to the multiple positive cases in the qualification period
Following the Executive Board meeting in Tbilisi, the summary of the relevant decisions will also be published.
