Hungary’s anti-doping authority said on Monday it had been “maliciously targeted” in the documentary. The case is set to feature during the IOC’s executive commission as it meets on Wednesday in Lausanne. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Monday the accusations made by a German broadcaster of corruption and doping cover-ups at the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) were “very serious and worrying”. ARD, who broke the story on Russia’s state doping scandal, claim prominent weightlifters were rarely subject to tests, while some controllers were allegedly taking cash to accept manipulated urine samples. The ARD programme also cited documents allegedly showing at least $5 million (4.5 million euros) in funding flowing from the IOC to the IWF were transferred into two Swiss accounts, of which only federation president Tamas Ajan had oversight. “The IOC takes note of the ARD report. The accusations are very serious and worrying,” the IOC said. “The IOC wants to clarify that –- contrary to what ARD is claiming –- it was not in possession of ‘most of the documents’ on which the film is based. This applies to the documents regarding the doping statistics and those regarding the alleged financial irregularities.”Advertisementcenter_img Promoted ContentTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A Tattoo11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do6 Things You Didn’t Know About Channing Tatum’s Ex-WifeThe Best Cars Of All Time6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneBest Car Manufacturers In The World10 Absolutely Stunning Asian Actresseslast_img
