WEIGHTLIFTING’S OLYMPIC SPOT MIGHT BE IN DANGER AMID ARD’S DOPING CLAIMS
On Wednesday, the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) will hold an emergency meeting in Doha to address the German state broadcaster ARD’s recent report, accusing IWF and its long-time Hungarian leader Tamás Aján with systematic doping, fraud, mismanagement, and embezzlement. While some dignitaries want his head, Aján denies wrongdoings.
The scandal broke out following ARD’s documentary Secret Doping – the Lord of the Lifters, published on January 5th.
