“You were born to be a player. You were meant to be here. This moment is yours.”


Herb Brooks















The United Nations General Assembly adopted Sports in the post-2015 Development Agenda. Sport is now included in the final outcome document as an “important enabler” of sustainable development for the goals, which were adopted by the UN Member States with a commitment to implement them by 2030.Paragraph 37 of “Transforming our World acknowledges the same.

Paragraph 37 of “Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” reads: “Sport is also an important enabler of sustainable development. We recognise the growing contribution of sport to the realisation of development and peace in its promotion of tolerance and respect and the contributions it makes to the empowerment of women and of young people, individuals and communities as well as to health, education and social inclusion objectives.”

 This new UN Agenda specifically acknowledges the important role that sport plays promoting healthy lifestyles, education and social inclusion.

IOC publishes unprecedented Olympic Movement Code for preventing competition manipulation


a. Acknowledging the danger to sports integrity from the manipulation of sports competitions, all sports organisations, in particular the International Olympic Committee, all International Federations, National Olympic Committees and their respective members at the Continental, Regional and National level and IOC recognised organisations (hereinafter, ‘Sports Organisations’), restate their commitment to safeguarding the integrity of sport, including the protection of clean athletes and competitions as stated in Olympic Agenda 2020;

b. Due to the complex nature of this threat, Sports Organisations recognise that they cannot tackle this threat alone, and hence cooperation with public authorities, in particular law enforcement and sports betting entities, is crucial;

c. The purpose of this Code is to provide all Sports Organisations and their members with harmonised regulations to protect all competitions from the risk of manipulation. This Code establishes regulations that are in compliance with the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions 1 , in particular Article 7. This does not prevent Sports Organisations from having more stringent regulations in place;

d. In the framework of its jurisdiction as determined by Rule 2.8 of the Olympic Charter, the IOC establishes the present Olympic Movement Code on the Prevention of the Manipulation of Competitions, hereinafter the Code;

e. Sports Organisations bound by the Olympic Charter and the IOC Code of Ethics declare their commitment to support the integrity of sport and fight against the manipulation of competitions by adhering to the standards set out in this Code and by requiring their members to do likewise. Sports Organisations are committed to take all appropriate steps within their powers to incorporate this Code by reference, or to implement regulations consistent with or more stringent than this Code.

“official” means any person who is the owner of, a shareholder in, an executive or a staff member of the entities which organise and/or promote sports competitions, as well as referees, jury members and any other accredited persons. The term also covers the executives and staff of the sports organisation, or where appropriate, other competent sports organisation or club that recognises the competition.

3. Giving and/or receiving a Benefit for the provision of Inside Information regardless of whether any Inside Information is actually provided.

2.5 Failure to report

1.

g. Whether or not the manipulation included a violation of a technical rule of the respective Sports Organisation;

h. Whether or not the competition was attended by the competent national or international representative of the Sports Organisation.

2. Any form of aid, abetment or attempt by a Participant that could culminate in a violation of this Code shall be treated as if a violation had been committed, whether or not such an act in fact resulted in a violation and/ or whether that violation was committed deliberately or negligently.
