Commonwealth Games gold medallist Ei­leen Cikamatana has severed ties with Weightlifting Fiji.

And has she has pulled out being a recipient of the International Olympic Committee scholar­ship for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

In a letter to Weightlifting Fiji and Fiji Associa­tion of Sports and National Olympic Committee, Cikamatana said;

“I have made my own decision to step down. I will see the chairman of the IWF Anti-Doping Commission, Dr. Patrick Schamasch, in Noumea, to make him aware that I am no longer compet­ing in the sport of weightlifting and that I am no longer a member of Weightlifting Fiji.
