The European Weightlifting Federation’s Fair Play Commission is very pleased to share with you the confirmation of membership of the European Weightlifting Federation EWF at the International Fair Play Committee CIFP.

Please find the list of member organizations where our federation also appears.

We will maintain a close collaboration with CIFP for joint projects.

Since its foundation by UNESCO and a number of international sports governing bodies in Paris in 1963 the goal of the International Fair Play Committee is the worldwide defense and promotion of fair play.

The activity of CIFP is aimed at national and international organizations in the field of sports and education, and professional athletes with a special emphasis on children, adolescents and those in charge of training them, namely coaches and trainers.

The CIFP has an important educational role to play in supporting fair play, promoting a better understanding of fair play values and preventing adverse behavior. In cooperation with various national governing bodies such as ministries, Olympic committees, sports federations, media and sports press associations the CIFP encourages and welcomes the establishment of national fair play committees.

In order to honor and direct attention to acts of fair play performed either within or outside the sports world, the International Fair Play Committee annually awards Fair Play Prizes to personalities who have proved to be excellent ambassadors of fair play.

In addition to the world’s most important Fair Play Day event, on the 7th of September 2022, our Federation will take common steps to spread the values of Fair Play and Clean Sport in our community.

The EWF Executive Board welcomes this success of the EWF’s Fair Play Commission Chairman, Mr. Alexandru Padure, and ensures full involvement in the agreed and future activities.
