Olympics-Organisers step up efforts to stop illegal gambling | 路透中文网

Ninety percent of the ground work is

already there,” Betfair’s public affairs manager Susannah Gill

said in an interview.

London organisers will meet representatives of the IOC,

Sports Minister Hugh Robertson, the Gambling Commission and

betting companies on March 20, a Betfair executive told Reuters

on Friday.

* Advice to be offered to athletes in Olympic Village

“I think with doping, sports have got their heads around

that and are dealing with the issue. Regulation and transparency is the key,” Gill said.

. I think betting is

something which has cropped up which they hadn’t given as much

thought to, particularly the world of online gambling which is

fair enough as the industry is only a decade old,” Gill said.

The ban applies to other delegation members including

coaches, team officials and referees.

“The unregulated market, the blackness of it to everyone is

the issue.

Betfair, which has eight analysts monitoring betting

patterns on its exchange, has struck similar agreements to share

information with soccer’s governing body FIFA, the International

Cricket Council and the English Football Association.

Gill said she believed the world of sport was beginning to

address the issue of illegal betting having previously been slow

to realise the severity of the threat it poses.

* IOC president has identified illegal betting as threat

Betting is prohibited for athletes taking part in the Games

under a code of ethics running for a month from the opening of

the Olympic Village on July 16.

British company Betfair, which operates the world’s largest

betting exchange, has agreed to share information with the IOC

on potentially suspect gambling at this year’s Olympics.

* Organisers, betting industry to meet on March 20

“It will be a kind of education zone, a place where they can

go and get information,” said Gill.

LONDON, March 2 Olympic organisers will

meet betting industry representatives this month to finalise

measures to prevent illegal gambling at London 2012, with plans

for a drop-in zone to offer advice to athletes in the Olympic

Village during the Games.

International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Jacques

Rogge said last year that illegal betting is as big a threat to

the integrity of sports as doping.

Among the measures being considered by the IOC’s head of

ethics Paquerette Zappelli is setting up an area in a prominent

location within the Olympic Village where athletes get advice on

gambling regulations.

The threat posed by sports betting corruption came to the

fore last year when three Pakistani cricketers were jailed after

being found guilty of taking bribes to fix parts of a test match

against England in London in 2010.

Despite the efforts of the gaming industry to combat fixing,

everyone involved in sport recognises that the main threat lies

in unregulated betting in Asia.

“The idea is to make sure that we all know who we are, the

system of contact during the Olympics and what will happen if

there are any issues
