This month we addressed the wider topic of integrity in sport with a focus on competition manipulation.
Betting, match-fixing, sharing inside information and doping in sport are all forms of cheating, running contrary to the idea of a clean and fair field of play. We examined each of these areas with our expert panel and an athlete guest. We also looked at how personal and sport values affect decision-making and how moments of vulnerability can lead to taking poor decisions. In turn, we discussed how this can lead to personal, social and economic consequences.
Gabriel Sagastume joined us as our athlete guest. Gabriel is a two-time Olympian in Taekwondo and an Athlete 365 Prevention of Competition Manipulation Ambassador for the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
