In case some have not heard, Kimberley Walford, 6 time women's IPF Open Raw World Champion, has been "released" by the IPF. As in, kicked out. Hey, mebbe she can go join PA.

Wun minnit Gaston kicks out an entire nation of lifters (plus his nemesis, Robert Wilks who fought hard to clean up the Icarus style drug testing issues with some IPF member nations), nek minnit he tosses out the best female powerlifter on the planet. Methinks that the latter act may cause more problems than the former, which is a shame.

No details as to why. But read between the lines.

OK. This is an "educated" guess. According to The Google, Kimberley competed in a USPF comp which had a prize pool (not that the money mattered). The IPF affiliate in the US is the good ol' USAPL, not the USPF (which is also not drug tested).

That would put her into the "naughty" list when she competed in a non sanctioned fed.

Nothing is clearly stated, a la the IPF vs PA issue. But them's the facts.

Rules are rules. If you don't want to follow NFL rules, go play AFL. If you don't want to play with IPF rules, go find another fed. Any fed.

To be fair, Walford is well and truly versed in the IPF code of conduct, so it's a bit arrogant for her to say that because she's "good", the rules don't apply to her.

But, there may be other factors at play. I guess it will come out, officially, eventually.
