Meeting of the IWF Anti-Doping Commission

The official meeting of the IWF Anti-Doping Commission was held on 15 January 2015 in Lausanne in presence of Dr. Patrick Schamasch- Chairman, Dr. Michael Petrou – member of the ADC, Dr. Magdolna Trombitas – Legal counsel and Mrs Melody Exhenry – Administrative assistant.

The members defined the strategy and set up the goals for 2015 and selected the IRTP Athletes. The Test Distribution Plan have been profoundly and carefully analysed and the ADC is ready to continue its increased cooperation with the other stakeholders of the Anti-Doping Community.

The ADC registered perceptible progress in 2014 in the relentless war on doping and the results seem to verify that the weightlifting sport has been on the right path.
