Kazakhstan’s Weightlifting federation made a statement about the exclusion of national team from WC.  

On September 30 and October 1 the Executive Committee of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) held a meeting in Bucharest (Romania) in which the committee disqualified Kazakhstan, Russia, China, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Moldova federations from WC for one year. These countries are punished for having three or more positive results in the re-examination of doping samples from the Summer Olympics of 2008 and 2012.

"As expected, the Executive Committee members reaffirmed the" Tbilisi’s decision" and discussed ways to implement it based on the recommendations of the special commission. The Kazakh Federation claimed that for several reasons it does not deserve sanctions. The anti-doping policies and work improved, as a result, in 2016 and 2017 there was no banned drugs detection from Kazakhstan’s athletes. Kazakh delegation transmitted this information to IWF Executive Committee, " – Federation says.

According to the IWF's official statement, notification of the decision implementation and the relevant conditions will be sent to nine national federations in October.

Currently, the Kazakh side is working on ensuring that no disciplinary measures are applied to the junior and junior teams of Kazakhstan.

It is expected that the main disciplinary measure will be the removal of Kazakh adult team for 12 months. The suspension can be lifted earlier based on the conclusion of a special commission that will monitor the situation in the field of practical anti-doping in nine countries.

On the eve, it was known that the national team of Kazakhstan will not participate in the WC. The World Weightlifting Championship 2017 will be held from November 28 to December 5 in an American city of Anaheim.

Previously, the federations of the three countries tried to appeal the decision on a disqualification, but the Sports Arbitration Court of the Swiss Lausanne sided with the IWF.
