Is weightlifting out of the Olympics?
The legislation gives the International Olympic Committee (IOC) more powers to add new items to the Olympics and to eliminate existing ones.
The move comes amid years of doping and corruption in the International Weightlifting Federation.

At the same time, the future of boxing is in balance. The IOC strongly disagrees with the practices of the International Boxing Federation. Two years ago, the IOC exempted the Boxing Federation from boxing responsibilities at the Tokyo Olympics. The IOC is also considering adding new sports to the Games as the future of weightlifting and boxing remains uncertain. As part of this, break dancing will be performed at the 2024 Paris Olympics. At the same time, skateboarding, climbing, and surfing, which were part of the Olympics, will continue. The weightlifting scandal, which has been plagued by allegations of corruption and doping for years, has also been linked to allegations of financial mismanagement. Until last year, Tomas Ajan, a member of the International Olympic Committee, was at the helm of the International Weightlifting Federation. He stepped down after two decades as head of the federation. Weightlifting was full of corruption and doping controversy at this time. A German media outlet reported on this.
The IOC's probe into boxing has been extended following heightened suspicions about the conduct of boxing competitions at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Apart from this, the IOC is dissatisfied with the election of the President of the Boxing Federation. The future of boxing at the Paris Olympics will be determined by the conduct of boxing competitions at the Tokyo Olympics and how the federation operates under the new president, Umar Kremlev.
Excluding weightlifting and boxing from the Olympics would be a setback for India as well. In weightlifting, Meerabhai Chanu won silver for India at the Tokyo Olympics. In boxing, Lavlina Borgohein won a bronze medal for India. It would be a setback for India, which is aiming for better performance in these events at the next Olympics.
