Weightlifting Outlook For Russia In Rio


This is the first reaction of legendary Olympic weightlifter  and coach David Rigert on the IOC decision not to ban Team Russia from the Olympics in Rio. The decision was announced on Sunday and the last word is now up to the individual sports federations.

Will the IWF allow Russian athletes without a history of WADA disqualifications to compete in Rio?

Rigert is very optimistic.

However the quote is a touch provocative.

What these “tough questions” the IWF President will need to answer if Team Russia is banned from lifting at the Olympics?

It was a public statement for the record. Am I missing something?
