I work in the sport integrity industry. I say industry because, as sport has grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry itself, this has urged the need to maintain a sense of fairness and protect sport’s integrity. One of the reasons I work in this industry is because I love sport. Sport brings people together, transcending social, cultural, religious and language boundaries. It teaches young people to exercise and use their body, to train and compete, to win and lose, to be determined and focused, to cooperate with other people, to set goals and work hard to reach them and many other valuable virtues. In many ways, it can be argued that sport is one of the best avenues to bring up young people and teach them skills and values that are ever-more-important in broader society.
