Indian Weightlifting Federation executive body to be reconstituted on Dec 27

A new executive body of the Indian Weightlifting Federation, the members of which resigned en masse last month, will be constituted by the Indian Weightlifting Federation General Body in its special meeting here on December 27.

The Indian Olympic Association, which exerted pressure following a a series of dope flunks by the Indian lifters in October led to the resignation, on December 5 issued a notification for convening a special GBM on December 27.

The IOA had said that nobody from the earlier executive body would be allowed in the new committee as they could not stop doping by lifters due to which India now face ban by the international body.
