Attila Adamfi Left The Post Of CEO Of The IWF Amid Doping Scandals

Attila Adamfi, Director General Of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF), has left the organization, according to TASS.

"My job as CEO of the IWF is coming to an end. My goal has always been to serve the interests of athletes," Adamfi said.

In early June, it became known that the independent Commission of Richard McLaren, investigating the activities of the former leader of the IWF, declared large-scale corruption in the organization when it was headed by Hungarian Tamas Ayan. We are talking in particular about the coverage of doping violations. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said it would carefully study the McLaren report and work with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to identify possible violations committed in weightlifting competitions at the Olympic games.

Ayan was in the leadership of the IWF for 44 years, including 20 years as President. In April, he resigned amid high-profile allegations of corruption.
