    The IPF have just told USAPL, the US IPF affiliate federation, that they must re-instate all positive drug tested lifters. Further, the IPF wants to take over the US national drug testing. This would send them broke as the cost is prohibitive to test all the lifters that the IPF want tested. Don't quote me on this, but I am under the impression that a single drug test is around the US$1000 mark. I'm happy to be corrected if that is way out of whack.

    So, all lifters who have tested positive must be allowed to compete again and all lifts reinstated.

    Further, one of the accusations against the IPF is that some members who are in charge of hotel choice and hotel bookings (lifters are restricted to stay only in a very short list of hotels during international IPF organized comps) have been, allegedly, been padding the bill. Now, if that is true (yet to be tested in a criminal trial), then one can only assume that the bill for drug tests will also be padded.

    However, that's just an allegation at this stage. No criminal charges have been made against the IPF (yet) but you can understand the nervousness of the USAPL when they are told that all their tests don't measure up (which may or may not be true), that all banned lifters must be reinstated and that the IPF will take over deciding who, and when, US lifters are tested. Now if, allegedly, the bill might be padded, you can imagine why the USAPL are nervous about their future financial viability.

    Just to be clear, some of the above are just rumours and allegations at this stage. That may change, or it may not.

    However, taking a step back, it looks like the IPF is being run by some rather dictatorial guidelines, especially considering that some countries are not required (in real world terms) to drug test their lifters, either by state approved labs or third party labs. So I'm thinking that the IPF is cutting down the wrong tree.

    I guess it will all come out in the wash.

    Reddit thread, which is 99% guesses but then even USAPL has no idea what the charge was to WADA.
