The IOC regularly organises meetings, seminars and workshops for a range of stakeholders (governments, international organisations, betting operators and the sports movement). The objective 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).

Important tools to protect sport’s credibility and integrity have been created since the adoption of Olympic Agenda 2020 that serve to raise awareness and facilitate cooperation between the various stakeholders concerned. Examples include: the Believe in Sport Code of Conduct and educational campaign, comprising an integrity toolbox and e-learning programme for Olympic athletes and officials; educational activities during the Youth Olympic Games; and the IOC-INTERPOL capacity-building programme.

Prevention of competition manipulation

Prevention of competition manipulation

Find out about the IOC’s efforts to protect clean athletes from any kind of competition manipulation. Competition manipulation is when an athlete or official cheats to remove the unpredictability of a competition. They may cheat to lose a competition or part of it, which is entirely against the Olympic spirit. Competition manipulation can happen in any sport and in any country.
