Abstract:

Australians love playing and watching their sport. In our society, elite sportspeople are viewed as role models, however, an increasing incidence of sporting scandals is compromising sporting values and the spirit of competition, spurred on by commercial pressures to win at all costs. Professor Hans Westerbeek asks, "How do we better prepare young Australians to make well-informed decisions in regard to playing and enjoying sport in a world where performance-enhancing drugs, sexism, homophobia, racism, corruption, gambling and political power plays are rife?" This book highlights the principles of fairness and integrity in sport; investigates the extent of corruption and cheating in Australian and international sports; and tackles a number of concerns in relation to abuse and discrimination. How can elite athletes, players and sporting organisations play by the rules, and ensure we all have a sporting chance?
