SAVE THE DATE | 2019 National Sport Integrity Forum


John Wylie AM Sport Australia Chair, John Bertrand AO, Sport Australia Hall of Fame Chair and Professor Peter Dawkins AO, Vice Chancellor and President of Victoria University are proud to announce the 2019 National Sport Integrity Forum.

The Rise of Athlete Rights: The Fair Play aGENDER

The rise of the individual athlete's voice in seeking to establish and advocate their rights is now a key driver of both public opinion and sport policy.   
Athletes like South African middle-distance runner Caster Semenya are making headlines in Australia and around the world as sport grapples with balancing athlete rights and what is fair.

Restrictions resulting from IOC Rule 40, and equity of broadcast and sponsorship revenue distribution are now being challenged globally and closer to home, as athlete and player unions grow in voice and force.

Issues of fairness, inclusion and athlete rights are central to this conversation as we seek to ensure the integrity of sport at all levels.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
