IOC warns weightlifting federation about doping
Sport risks exclusion from 2024 Games if it fails to provide 'satisfactory' report
The governing body of weightlifting has been warned that the sport risks exclusion from the 2024 Olympic Games if it does not provide a "satisfactory" report about how it is dealing with doping by December.
"The IWF has until December 2017 to deliver a satisfactory report to the IOC on how they will address the massive doping problem this sport is facing," IOC president Thomas Bach told reporters.
Bach said the report was a condition for weightlifting remaining among the 28 Olympic sports in 2024.
