International Olympic Committee

Major betting companies will do their part for the upcoming summer Olympic games in China by notifying the International Olympic Committee of any suspicious betting patterns on events. It is the first time such an arrangement has been officially agreed to by the athletic organizer. A series of betting and fixing scandals in soccer, cricket and tennis precipitated the move. Meanwhile, the committee has, for the first time, issued a blanket warning to athletes that gambling of any form will not be tolerated in Beijing.
