Greek weightlifting is investing in the future

According to reports quoting Federation President Pyrros Dimas, the Greek Weightlifting Federation carried out more than 120 doping tests in 2010 including in and out of competition testing.

Success and results, under his new hard-line initiative for a clean sport, do not come overnight, said Mr. Dimas.  The Greek federation is investing in the future, and those results will come gradually, he said. 

Some early results of those initiatives might be seen later this month at European Junior Championship in Cyprus.
