Independent Member Federations Sanctions Panel decision on Egyptian Weightlifting Federation

The Independent Member Federations Sanctions Panel (IMFSP) has suspended the Egyptian Weightlifting Federation for a period of two years.

The Egyptian Weightlifting Federation was officially informed of the decision by the IMFSP on 12 September 2019 and has 21 days from this date to appeal to CAS.

The IMFSP has the sole authority to impose sanctions on Member Federations, in line with Article 12 of the IWF Anti-Doping Policy, which was approved by the IWF Executive Board in order to ensure greater independence and transparency.

No further comment will be made on this matter until the period of appeal has concluded.
