IMFSP sanctions Thailand, Malaysia weightlifting federations


The Independent Member Federation Sanctions Panel (IMFSP) has banned the Thailand and Malaysian weightlifting federations from participating in the forthcoming Olympics 2020 (also known as Olympics 2021).

IMFSP, which was approved by the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF), has the sole authority to impose sanctions, in line with the IWF anti-doping policy. In addition, Thailand’s membership shall be suspended for three years, while Malaysia’s membership for the next 12 months.

Due to questions raised by the International Olympic Committee, the IWF has been very strict with the doping problems for sometime now. Both federations have been given 21 days to appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
