International Anti-Corruption Day
The manipulation of sporting competitions by organized syndicates threatens the integrity of sport. With large profits to be made and a limited risk of detection, competition manipulation has become attractive to criminals. Addressing match-fixing and other crimes in sport requires national and international cooperation between sport, public authorities, betting regulators, the gambling industry and law enforcement. In the SIRCuit, Jeremy Luke, Senior Director, Sport Integrity with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, discusses what we can do to protect our athletes and the integrity of Canadian sport.
