Corruption in the International Weightlifting Federation

“ There is an extraordinary story of four members of the Albanian Weightlifting Federation dividing $100,000 between them and driving it from Tirana to Budapest to pay to Aján personally, under the threat that if they did not make the payment, Albania would be excluded from the Rio Olympic Games”

I started listening to weight lifting podcasts after getting my strength kit, the sport has just had a damning report published - and Im posting here as I think doping and corruption is generally of interest even in other sports.

Essentially the guy running international weightlifting for the last thirty to fifty years :scream:(depending on how you count) has been found out.
