    ITG has published excerpts from a recent letter from Tamás Aján to Thailand's Intarat Yodbangtoey:

    So I've been trying to work out why the Southeast Asian Games has been stripped of its status as a Silver Olympic Qualifying event.

    I saw a passing reference in another article that says that despite being instructed not to compete by the IWF, Thailand has "entered several weightlifters in its delegation list to the SEA Games."

    Coupled with the recent assertions in Tamás Aján's letter to Intarat Yodbangtoey, is it reasonable to assume that Thailand has refused to withdraw the entries for its weightlifters in the Southeast Asian Games and the IWF has retaliated by cancelling its status as an Olympic qualifying event?

    I would really appreciate it if somebody with knowledge of the situation could confirm or deny this hypothesis.

    Since there was no doping at the WWC any longer these letters are unnecessary!

    A few USADA sanctions slipped under the radar in the last week or so. The arbitration for the youth lifter is interesting, calling USADA out on a "witch hunt."

    There are no Thai weightlifters in the start list that was released today.

    But bizarrely they have scheduled six women's weight classes (45/49/55/59/64/71) and four men's seight classes (55/61/67/73) on the program. What the hell?

    the last i didn't see. i saw the two before that but missed Kiara's. Wacky story. I'm guessing her stepfather thinks someone gave her something.

    I'm confused here. Are the US and IWF agreeing to leave all sanctioning up to national bodies? What is this saying?

    I would agree. If a minor is involved I think there needs to be an investigation into the coaches and other athletes around her. The dumb thing to me is the step-father just throwing his hands into the air and not assisting the CAS in this. If it was proven that she was unwittingly taking Dbol and turinobol because the coach/whoever was giving it to her she would have likely gotten a reduced sanction, then the coach would have ended up with the larger sanction.
