IWF sticker

I recently got a barbell from a craigslist ad. It seems like a nice bar, and it has a sticker on the inside collar that says "IWF". Does this mean it is a IWF certified olympic barbell? I attached a picture of the sticker and the only other identification markings on the bar. I don't know what kind of bar it is (I was hoping someone could tell me), but I know it came from the gym at University of North Texas, in Denton. Was this bar a good find?

Re: IWF sticker

That's a Leoko barbell. They are pretty good bars and since they're IWF certified, they can handle a good chunk of weight. I know they were used in '87 Worlds Krastev snatched 216kg and Taranenko and Kurlovich CJ'd 265/266 respectively.
There is no substitute for strength, and no excuse for the lack of it.
