The Athlete365 Space, located in the heart of the Youth Olympic Village, is hosting various activities as part of the Athlete Education Programme throughout the YOG, each related to a different aspect of sporting education and integrity. In the first week of the Games, athletes have been visiting the IOC’s Believe in Sport booth and WADA’s Clean Sport booth. 

     The Believe in Sport booth is helping young athletes to better understand the risks of competition manipulation and raise awareness of how they may unwittingly be involved in it. Using the Believe in Sport interactive game, athletes have been creating their own avatars by taking a selfie and choosing their own clothes, sport and even hair colour, before navigating their way through some difficult real-life situations, such as betting on sport, sharing insider information and being asked to deliberately underperform.
