International Olympic Committee

According to a report on gamblingcompliance.com, the International Olympic Committee will track betting on Olympic sports in Beijing this summer, and at the Vancouver winter games in 2010. In an unprecedented move, the IOC will reportedly use the same early warning system used by football’s governing body, FIFA, to monitor betting on World Cup qualifying games. Reports attribute the move to concerns about match fixing, which has recently marred the image of tennis and soccer, and the growing prevalence of online wagering.
