Sports Integrity in Australia: legislating into a position of strength

Australia has recently conducted a review of its ‘Sports Integrity Arrangements.’ The resulting report was presented to the Commonwealth Government in March 2018 and was made publicly available on 1 August 20181. This date is significant, because, in the same announcement, the current federal Minister for Sport, Bridget McKenzie2, launched the new National Sports Plan for Australia and a name change for the Australian Sports Commission (now Sport Australia)3. Known as the ‘Wood Review,’ the 340 page report and its 52 recommendations are proclaimed to be “the most comprehensive analysis of Australia’s sports integrity arrangement ever undertaken4.” Catherine Ordway, Senior Consultant at Snedden Hall & Gallop and Senior Fellow at the University of Melbourne, outlines the state of integrity in Australian sport in light of the findings of the review and its recommendations, the new strategic plan for sport, and discusses how the proposed legislative changes might contribute to broader anti-corruption strategies in Australian sport.
