Integrity In Triathlon (Anti-Doping, Member Protection, Match Fixing)
TRIATHLON AUSTRALIA integrity framework
Maintaining the integrity of the sport of triathlon in Australia is of utmost importance to Triathlon Australia and to our State and Territory Triathlon Associations.
The release of the Australian Crime Commission’s “Organised Crime and Drugs in Sport” report in February 2013, outlining the doping and match fixing issues permeating Australian sport, and recent systemic issues revealed in both professional and Olympic sports has highlighted the need for sporting organisations to be vigilant in their approach to the prevention of integrity failures, particularly with respect to doping and race-fixing. This framework consists of essential policies and programs which will contribute to protecting the integrity of the sport of triathlon in Australia.
Triathlon Australia Integrity Update: 23rd December 2020 - 2021 Anti-Doping Policy
Triathlon Australia has recently approved it’s 2021 Anti-Doping Policy which comes into effect on the 1st of January 2021.
Moving forward the Triathlon Australia Anti-Doping Policy is the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy and can be found on the Sport Integrity Australia website: Australian National Anti-Doping Policy
It is important that all members understand their obligations under the new policy. Changes include a new anti-doping rule violation of retaliation, a category of athletes that is lower-level and flexibility related to sanctioning for certain levels of athletes/participants.
