Young People debate sports integrity with leading sports figures

Young People debate sports integrity with leading sports figures

A debate about sporting integrity between young people and representatives from UNICEF, UK Anti-Doping and the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will take place at Loughborough University next week.

Youngsters from local schools will join, academics, PhD researchers and policymakers from national sporting organisations and international charities at Loughborough University Football Stadium, on Thursday, November 8.

The day will include roundtable discussions centred around three main topics:

  • Should athletes be punished for the use of appearance (not performance) enhancement substances?
  • Do the means justify the ends in sports coaching? Motivational coaching or bullying to achieve the best performance possible.
  • Should athletes be punished for what they post on social media?
