    They're not sanctions. We know how long the legal process usually drags on.

    Phil just stated that the IOC would have to close the cases and then the IWF would, so unlikely it will happen.

    My spies in the Kremlin tell me that the Spanish Federation has sent an official letter to Tamás Aján stating that Lidia Valentín was misquoted, and that the Spanish Federation does not endorse the criticisms in the ARD documentary.

    like energy, medals are neither lost or destroyed, just merely transformed or displaced.

    A north korean will wind up with a bronze.

    And a kazakh lifter will upgrade her bronze for a silver now.

    columbia with another medal now too.

    she hasn't competed at an IWF meet since 2014.

    (I don't think she was sanctioned, until now)

    There was a surprisingly good podcast on Weightlifting House this week: "How Athletes Pass Drug Tests & The History of PEDs in Weightlifting w/ Alex Kolliari-Turner"

    I was familiar with most of the material, but it was clear that their guest really knew the subject inside out. I never knew for example that there was documented evidence that the Soviets were using exogogenous testosterone as early as the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki, or that Weightlifting was the reason that steroids spread so quickly into other American sports (via S&C coaches associated with York and Bob Hoffmann).

    It's worth a listen if you have the time.
