Egypt was banned from the World Championships of weightlifting for doping offences – based on state press – and might also be suspended from Tokyo 2020.
Several Egyptian weightlifters were on the entry list for the entire championships, which start on Wednesday in Thailand, but had been lost when the start publication of the competition was released on Tuesday.
“The banning is for two years and this usually means that we will not have the ability to participate in the Olympics,” Sherif El-Erian, the secretary general of Egypt’s Olympic Committee, told Al-Ahram paper.
The International Wrestling Federation (IWF) has not confirmed that the ban but its rules say any state coming three or more positive tests over a year faces sanction.
In 2016, five Egyptian youngsters, including two women, failed doping tests at the African Youth and Junior Championships in Cairo.
“Once we get an official letter concerning the ban, we will do our best to solve the emergency,” additional El-Erian.
The World Championships will be the most important qualifying event for Tokyo 2020.
Sara Ahmed and rio 2016 bronze medallists Mohamed Ehab were set to be the strongest medal contenders at Tokyo of their nation.
