Weightlifters heave sigh of relief

After weeks of uncertainty, decks were cleared on Thursday for Indian weightlifters’ participation in the Commonwealth Games with the Organising Committee releasing Rs 1.75 crore to the Indian Weightlifting Federation so that it can pay the doping fine to the international body.

The Sports Ministry had directed the OC to immediately release Rs 1.75 crore interest-free loan to the IWLF so that it can pay the doping fine of $3,75,000 to International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) before the August 31 deadline.
