CLEANSPORT COLLECTIVE http://cleansport.org

Professional pledge

  1. I pledge to honor myself, competitors, sponsors, sport and society by choosing to stay clean of performance enhancing drugs. Choosing to not play by the rules steals from hard working athletes who choose to do the right thing and challenges the health and integrity of sport. I will be a positive example in the community as an advocate and ambassador for clean sport. I pledge that I have and will always train clean, compete clean and live clean. 
  2. I agree to be an outspoken advocate of clean sport
  3. I agree to donate $25,000 to CSC charity partner if I ever test positive

*plus other pledges for brands, amateurs etc

Lanes of Change

Awareness

We are in this together. The more voices that speak in unity, the stronger we are.

Testing

It is time to intervene. Through our partners, we will support, aid and equip current drug testing regimes with the best and most updated tools and research.

Advocacy

We are a community with purpose. It is about the ecosystem of sport working together. We want it to be known that we support people over performances, and we celebrate honesty, integrity and transparency above all.

Restoration

We are human, and we all make mistakes. Together with our partners, we provide a safe place for those who have doped or spoke out against those that have.

HEADS UP – I will be in Nepal for the next two weeks so, I won’t be putting out a ‘normal’ show. However, I have something special lined up. As many of you will know, Adam Campbell had a near fatal climbing accident just 9 weeks ago. I am pleased to say the recovery and healing process is going well. I caught up with Adam and I discussed the whole process and what lessons we can all learn from this in a 1-hour special. Episode 123 of Talk Ultra will be published automatically on Friday October 18th with a simple introduction and close.
