CWG Participation Chance Brightens for Indian Lifters

Indian lifters may eventually get to compete in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in the capital after the International Weightlifting Federation agreed to receive in four installments the $ 500,000 fine slapped on the Indian federation for doping violations.

The international body has accepted Indian Weightlifting Federation’s proposal to pay the hefty fine in three more installments after the national body had paid the first one of $50,000 in January just before the South Asian Games in Bangladesh.

Under the payment scheduled as approved by the international federation, IWF will have to pay $75,000 before April 4, $100,000 before July 15 and $2, 75,000 before August 15.
