    With regards to this thread's topic, I think this change is very symbolic but won't have much practical impact.

    Interesting article on ITG today.

    Exclusive: IWF moves from Hungary to Lausanne under new American leadership


    The most startling thing in the article is that Aján has been granted an ambassadorial role as one of the conditions of his resignation as President. What the hell!!?!?

    The next startling thing is that Richard McLaren is due to present his report on June 4. Which is much sooner that I'd expected.

    On the topic of the move to Lausanne, one unmentioned but significant consequence is that Switzerland instituted a law in 2015 which is known as "Lex Fifa" or the "FIFA Law". This law makes Sports Federations subject to Swiss laws on money laundering, and requires banks to flag any suspect payments involving sports officials and their relatives to the authorities. The second significance consequence is that it means Ajan's handpicked staff of cronies in the Budapest based IWF Secretariat will all be sacked. Hopefully we'll now see less Ajan style graft and corruption in the sport.

    As I have seen posted elsewhere, no more foxes guarding the hen house.

    Hang on, isn't the ROBI coefficient tide to those numbers?

    Yes.

    But it doesn't affect the Olympic qualifying process. The Olympic qualifying scores are calculated using the world record standards that were in place at the start of qualifying.

    Egypt is banned until September 2021 at the moment. They have six further (open) doping cases, which could result in another two year ban.

    So they could miss out on qualifying for 2024 again if the procedure is akin to the current criteria.

    If this doesn't force change of their system, nothing will.
