Independent Investigation of International Weightlifting

Many allegations have been made in the media regarding corruption within weightlifting at international level. In particular, the German ARD programme 'Lord of the Lifters' made specific allegations.

The IWF have commissioned an investigation into these allegations. The Investigation, led by Professor McLaren, is entirely independent. Professor McLaren will use the newly established IWF Oversight and Integrity Commission as his liaison to the IWF Executive Board. Professor McLaren is empowered to take whatever measures he sees fit to ensure each and every allegation is fully investigated and reported.

This whistleblower service - powered by Crimestoppers, the independent charity that gives people the power to speak up and stop crime, corruption and cheating - enables weightlifters, support personnel, coaches, staff and concerned family or friends to pass information directly to Professor McLaren about the level of this corruption, 100% anonymously.
