On Your Marks, Set… Stop! Understanding And Ending Sextortion In Sport

This report focuses on sextortion in sport, as a sector that is particularly vulnerable to sextortion, but has great potential as a channel to promote positive role models. Building on Transparency International’s 2020 study Breaking the Silence Around Sextortion: the Links Between Power, Sex and Corruption, it aims to identify the root causes of sextortion in the sport sector and inform the design of measures to prevent, report and sanction sextortion and other forms of sexual abuse in this sector. The report draws on reported cases of sextortion and other forms of sexual abuse from around the world, with a focus on Germany, Mexico, Romania and Zimbabwe.
