Weightlifting can be removed from the Olympic program
During a video conference on the IOC's YouTube channel, Bach said that weightlifting could be removed from the Olympic program.
Last week, Canadian lawyer McLaren released the results of an independent investigation into the extent of corruption in the International Weightlifting Federation.
According to him, the organization has hidden more than 40 positive doping samples from athletes from different countries so that they can win medals.
"It simply came to my notice then. I do not rule out that the strictest sanctions against the federation will be applied, including the removal from the Olympic Games, "Bach said.
In addition to doping violations, it was found that the IWF hid and embezzled $ 10.4 million.
