Joint USOPC, AAC, NGBC and USADA statement on actions taken by the International Weightlifting Federation. 

"The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, Athletes' Advisory Council, National Governing Bodies Council and United States Anti-Doping Agency join USA Weightlifting in strongly condemning the actions by the IWF to remove Ursula Garza Papandrea and Phil Andrews, who were leading the necessary reform and significant progress all athletes in the sport of weightlifting need and deserve. The IWF must commit to clean competition, governance reform and athlete representation - and ensure the current actions do not adversely impact athlete qualification and participation. We support IOC action and will partner with those around the world working toward the goal of clean sport."
