The IOC has several educational tools in place to raise athletes’ awareness of the risk of competition manipulation and related corruption. The following resources are freely available to everyone:
Have a look at the IOC PlayFair workshop organised for the athletes of the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing to protect the integrity of sport.
The IOC regularly organises meetings, seminars and workshops for a range of stakeholders (governments, international organisations, betting operators and the sports movement). The aim is to raise awareness, share best practices and define what is needed to ensure the credibility of sport through appropriate risk assessment and risk management.
Every two years, the IOC organises the International Forum on Sports Integrity (IFSI). For more information, have a look at the related IOC press release: IFSI 2015.
In 2014, the IOC signed an agreement with the International Criminal Police Organisation (INTERPOL) in order to assist in the protection of sports integrity and security and to establish ‘educational, informative and awareness-raising initiatives’. An INTERPOL-IOC Integrity in Sport Global Capacity Building and Training Programme was launched in 2015 for governments, law enforcement, sports organisations, and other stakeholders.
National Olympic Committees interested in having such Capacity Building Workshops conducted in their countries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
These Workshops aim to initiate and foster collaboration between public authorities (including Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Sport), law enforcement, the NOC and national sports federations, the betting industry and other actors involved in preventing the infiltration of crime into sport. National Workshops are one day gatherings for approximately 80 participants. The Workshops seek to identify current gaps in national and regional processes in dealing with competition manipulation, to share good practice from other jurisdictions and to elaborate an appropriate national framework to protect the integrity of sport.

PDMs are organised in countries who have already adopted a strong regulatory framework in relation to competition manipulation. The Meetings aim to bring together approximately 20 key decision makers for the purpose of refining a national coordinated framework to prevent competition manipulation and draft an action plan for each stakeholder. A PDM is a 1 day meeting involving public authorities (including Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Sport), law enforcement, the National Olympic Committee and national sports federations, the betting industry and other actors.
