PRINCIPLES AND VALUES OF CLEAN SPORT
The intrinsic value of sport, often called “the spirit of sport”, is the ethical pursuit of excellence through the dedicated perfection of each athlete’s natural talents. Clean sport is an environment where the health of athletes is protected and where they are provided with the opportunity to pursue high level performance without the use of prohibited substances and prohibited methods.
In doing so, clean sport protects the spirit of sport, which is the celebration of its spirit, body and mind and is reflected in the values we find in and through sport, including:
• Ethics, fair play, and honesty
