At the heart of the Biathlon Integrity Unit’s (BIU) mission is to restore trust and confidence to the sport of biathlon. To achieve that, we are focussed on addressing a number of different areas in our sport, which range from anti-doping to safeguarding, and from diversity issues to anti-corruption. 

It is the latter issue, anti-corruption, that often biathletes and other individuals within the sport are least familiar with. The BIU wants to remind participants within our sport that they must adhere to certain anti-corruption obligations that prevent any kind of result manipulation. Biathletes can be found guilty of corruption against the sport through actions such as match fixing and betting; and so, to avoid falling foul of the rules, it’s important to be familiar with what you must not do. 

As it relates to match fixing, this involves not:

  • Fixing or improperly influencing the result, progress, outcome, conduct or any other aspect of any  Biathlon competition;
  • Seeking, accepting, offering or agreeing to accept any bribe to fix or improperly influence the result,  progress, outcome, conduct or any other aspect of any Biathlon competition;
  • Intentionally failing to perform to the best of your abilities in any Biathlon competition.

As it relates to betting, this involves not:

  • Placing, accepting, laying or otherwise entering into any bet in relation to the result, progress, outcome, conduct or any other aspect of any Biathlon competition;
  • Instructing or enticing another party to enter into any bet in relation to the result, progress, outcome, conduct or any other aspect of any Biathlon competition;
  • Using ‘inside information’ for betting purposes;
  • Disclosing any ‘inside information’ to any party for betting purposes;
  • Providing, offering, giving, requesting or receiving any gift that risks undermining public confidence in the integrity of any Biathlon competition.

As is the case with all integrity issues, we encourage biathletes and other members of the community to familiarise themselves with the rules (see Chapter C of the IBU Integrity Code), and don’t forget if you have any questions to get in touch with the BIU: info@biathlonintegrity.com
