In June 2010, the International Olympic Committee President, Jacques Rogge said that: "cheating driven by betting is undoubtedly the biggest threat to sport after doping". Many of you will be very familiar with the international anti-doping framework, and the time, money and global cooperation that has gone into developing a harmonised program centering on the UNESCO Convention, and the World Anti-Doping Code since doping was first prohibited in the 1960's. So in saying that match fixing is a threat comparable to doping, you know that Rogge is serious about what the Olympic Movement sees as an enormous threat to their brand, and to the culture of sport itself.
