Project Aims

The Sport Whistle project aims to:

  1. Aware, inform, and activate athletes and stakeholders to recognize harmful irregularities in sport, to resist and to report, by introducing comprehensive whistleblower legislation.
  2. Protect those that speak out, and ensure that their claims, are properly investigated.
