    I can only speculate. But 'grey area substance' usually refers to medicines which have a legitimate medical use but also create 'helpful' side effects.

    In case anybody cares about the mechanics of final selection, on 4 June the national federations made their selections for athletes who qualified in more than one bodyweight class.

    Yes. I entirely agree. Money is clearly one of the major barriers for athlete participation in the African continental federation.

    I think you have to read it through the lens of "national coach in small country exaggerates wildly to impress local media and sponsors".

    Nobody in Samoa has actually been setting records. I've...

    Two of the athletes had results in the top six for their categories (though neither won a medal).

    I watched her lift at the 2019 Qatar Cup. She did a fairly easy 93/97/101 and 116/120/125x to finish 2kg ahead of Rebeka Koha.

    They should have stricter controls but unfortunately they often don't.

    My understanding is that all of the athlete appeal processes need to be concluded before they can be passed to the IMFSP for consideration.
