Lausanne (RWH) The coming webinar of the International Testing Agency ITA will address 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. The webinar will examine each of these areas with an expert panel and an athlete guest. There will be a look at how personal and sport values affect decision-making and how moments of vulnerability can lead to taking poor decisions. In turn, participants will discuss how this can lead to personal, social and economic consequences.
The webinars will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
