The International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) announced that there were zero doping violations at the 2017 IWF Junior World Championships this past June. Of the 256 athletes who competed, 166 tests were performed.

None of the tests came back positive.

The no-news announcement comes as the IWF prepares to present how it will clean up the sport of weightlifting to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) later this year.
