FairSport, a new not-for-profit organisation set-up
FairSport’s initial founders are Jim Swartz, Ed Stier, Louisa Watt and Johann Koss. Claudia Bokel, former International Olympic Committee (IOC) Athletes' Commission chair, Olympic medal winning fencer from Germany will work as executive director.
SPORT IS IN CRISIS
The world of competitive sport is at a crossroads. New revelations and admissions of cheating, as well as improved testing and retesting, have shown that doping, corruption, and bribery are widespread. We must come together to ensure that fair play remains the foundation of competition, or see sport lose its integrity and meaning.
TESTING IS NOT ENOUGH
While policies, testing, and investigations do deter and uncover violations, the real engine of change is the personal testimony of those who have seen cheating first-hand.
REAL CHAMPIONS STAND AGAINST CHEATING
It’s not easy for athletes and members of their entourage to come forward with their documented stories. Call them confidential sources, informants, or whistleblowers – we call them courageous for coming clean in what may be the toughest act of their lives.
