The President of the Bulgarian Weightlifting Federation ready to submit his resignation

The world isolation on Bulgarian weightlifting continues in full blast. Following the rules IWF has put a ban on Bulgarian National Team and did not let it take part in the World Championship in Paris. The President of the BWF Nedelcho Kolev learnt the news only minutes before the BWF was to pay the hotel accommodation of the team. The ban follows violations of the regulations on Whereabouts submission. The decision was taken by IWF Executive Board in 2010 and was reconfirmed after no measures were undertaken despite the numerous reminding for the presentation of the addresses of the weightlifters where they could be found for doping tests.

Mr. Kolev added he was ready to take the responsibility on the case by submitting his resignation.
