I love cricket. It’s my first sporting love. And I follow it around the world as much as I can.
I am happy to announce the appointment of two independent experts to look at the issues that have arisen related to Rob Young’s attempt at the Trans-America run.
Just a quick note to respond to all the comments related to Rob Young on my most recent blog concerning Dustin Johnson.
There’s so much happening in the world of sport, around issues that I care very much about and have been writing and talking about for some time, that it’s hard to know where to start. The IAAF, WADA, the IOC, UCI, FIFA … they continue to stumble on in their haze of poor governance practices making generally poor decisions and doing nothing to serve their stakeholders.
I had an interesting experience towards the end of last year. It occurred when I visited the CEO of a prominent local sporting team to brief them about SKINS (then) forthcoming social marketing campaign around supporting LGBT individuals in the sporting environment, known as #RainbowLaces.
Does sport need its own anti-corruption agency?
I was pleased to read the report on FIFA and Human Rights from Professor John G Ruggie of Harvard University.
