SPEAKING NOTES PROFESSOR RICHARD MCLAREN JUNE 4, 2020
16 There is certain information that I have reported separately, on a strictly confidential basis, to the O&I Commission. There are areas that require additional investigation. A further report may follow in due course. A report of findings in respect of antidoping controls will be filed with WADA and ITA, where appropriate. IF the will is there to reform… We have outlined a series of actions the new management can take to begin the process of restoring the organization to a functional capacity that can provide for the needs of weightlifting athletes and coaches. And ultimately transform the International Weightlifting Federation into a well- respected organization that acts in the best interests of athletes, coaches, trainers and all those involved in international weightlifting. It’s time to turn the page. And begin a new era for weightlifting.
