The ITA acknowledges the decision issued by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on former IWF official

The International Testing Agency (ITA) acknowledges the award issued by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on 18 January 2024 ruling that the conduct of Hasan Akkus, former Turkish Weightlifting Federation (TWF) President, former European Weightlifting Federation (EWF) President and former International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) Vice-President was “deceptive and reprehensible and […] prone to create severe damage to the federations which had entrusted him with top-level positions” but that such conduct does not amount to an anti-doping rule violation. The ITA welcomes the IWF’s decision to challenge the CAS decision before the Swiss Federal Tribunal.
