IOC ‘worried’ by report that weightlifting president ousted

In this news, we discuss the IOC ‘worried’ by report that weightlifting president ousted.

The International Olympic Committee said Wednesday it was “very worried” about the situation in weightlifting following a report according to which the interim president of the governing body was ousted. The IOC was reacting to a report from Inside The site Web of the Games which indicated that the interim president, Ursula Garza Papandrea, had been removed from her post by the board of directors at a meeting the American had not attended, and replaced by the vice president senior Intarat Yodbangtoey from Thailand. The IWF did not comment.

This follows disputes between senior weightlifting officials over how to handle the sport’s long-standing doping problem and allegations of financial mismanagement and missing funds involving longtime former president Tamas Ajan, who resigned in April. “The IOC is very concerned to learn of the announced decision by the Board of Directors of the International Weightlifting Federation to replace the Interim President, Ms Ursula Garza Papandrea, the manner in which the decision was made and the replacement chosen. “the IOC said in a statement.

“The IOC has enjoyed excellent cooperation with her during her tenure and fully supports the reforms she initiated within the IWF. Currently, the IOC has not received all the information necessary to fully assess the situation in its entirety. The IWF has not commented on the situation and still lists Papandrea as interim president on its site Web. The IOC Board of Directors previously warned the IWF that weightlifting’s place on the program for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games could be called into question if it did not reform its management and crack down on doping.
