Abstract

Over the past 20 years, highly publicised instances of doping, match-fixing and corruption in the governance of sports organisations, which in some cases are linked to betting and organised crime, have become a matter for grave concern to sports and wider communities around the world. This chapter introduces a number of key concepts and issues concerning the “integrity of sport”. Tackling cheating to win, cheating to lose or corporate corruption, requires sports administrators, athletes, policy makers and law enforcement officers to work collaboratively to draw on a range of risk countermeasures and mitigation solutions. A number of leading countermeasures and solutions are identified and explained. They include and range from good governance practices through intelligence-gathering and enhancement of athlete welfare to disciplinary and penal measures. Keywords: sport, integrity, corruption, doping, match-fixing
