  • International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach has said that weightlifting could be removed from the Olympic programme by 2024, if the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) fails to implement reforms in the fight against doping.

  • Bach said that many requested changes have been ignored by the IWF despite all the warnings and the situation is becoming more and more grave.
