Know your rights
Empower yourself with knowledge and awareness related to Safe Sport, including how to recognise and respond to behaviours which have no place in sport.
Treat others with respect
Be a Safe Sport role model. Learn about the role that you can play in fostering a safe sporting environment, and how your behaviour can impact others positively or negatively.
The athletes’ voice should be heard and reflected in the initiatives designed to protect you. Find out how, as athletes, you can use your voices to work together with entourage members and sports organisations to promote a safe sporting environment in every context.
Witnessing harassment and abuse and not saying anything can give the impression that the behaviour is OK. If you’re experiencing or if you suspect someone else is suffering from harassment and abuse, report directly to your International Federation (IF), or if the incident happens during the Olympic Games please report to the IOC Integrity and Compliance Hotline here.
We’re here to listen.

Athletes are people first, and it’s really important to know that you have the power to make your own decisions and set boundaries when it comes to your own body. Watch the Consent in Sport video and to learn more about your rights as a person and as an athlete.
