Anti-Match Fixing


TRIATHLON AUSTRALIA MATCH FIXING

Match-fixing is when someone influences the course or result of a sports event. They do this to gain advantage for themselves or for others, and to remove the uncertainty normally associated with sport. Match-fixing can be done by athletes, teams, agents, support staff, referees and officials or venue staff.  

It can happen in any of the following deliberate ways: 

  • fixing the result  
  • fixing the points spread  
  • an athlete’s under-performance,  
  • an athlete’s withdrawal (also known as ‘tanking’ or ‘manipulation’ and ‘experimenting’)  
  • an official’s deliberate misapplication of the rules  
  • interference with the play or playing surface  
  • abuse of inside information to place a bet
