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.

Work together

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.

Speak up

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.
