The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) has decided to allow athletes from Russia and Belarus to qualify for the Olympic qualifications, the IWF announced after an online meeting of the board.

The authorities of the federations that manage athletics, badminton, basketball, equestrian, sport climbing and surfing decided not to lift the bans they imposed after Russia invaded Ukraine 15 months ago.

“As part of this process, independent agencies will carry out individual checks on all athletes and relevant support personnel with Russian or Belarusian passports who intend to participate in IWF competitions,” the statement said.
