The unsporting manner in which the South African weightlifting championships were taken away from Gauteng could boomerang when the South African Weightlifing Federation's yearly general meeting takes place in Cape Town on July 11.
The championships were supposed to be held at Wits University on July 5, but was taken away when Gauteng indicated they had no more faith in the national executive.
This means that Gauteng has not had a major competition for the last two years.
The SA Federation's actions gave Gauteng every reason to have lost their confidence in the national body and the decision to move the championships to Cape Town could prove to be the final straw in the saga.
At the forthcoming AGM Gauteng will have a long list of queries ready and Kevin du Plooy and his executive could prepare themselves for a bombardment of questions which they will have to answer.
All indications are that July 11 will be the most hotly debated AGM in the history of the SA Weightlifting Federation.
Earlier Du Plooy threatened to ban Gauteng from all competitions after its chairman Rodney Anthony was accused of notifying the press about their problems.
This was denied by Anthony saying the press asked him for comment on the ongoing issue.
Meanwhile, the weightlifting fraternity has asked the SA executive to resign.
However, this will apparently not happen before the SA committee and Gauteng have gone head to head on July 11.
The championships will be held the following day. - Sapa
