The Guam Safe Sport Commission was activated in June 2018 to compile a strategic implementation of the policies and procedures to safeguard athletes and protect them from harassment and abuse in sport.
As stated in the Guam Safe Sport Code, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) considers it to be the responsibility of all sporting organizations to develop mechanisms to prevent harassment and abuse in sport. Safeguarding athletes from harassment and abuse is encompassed under the “Protection of Athletes” banner that was defined in the 2008 Basic Universal Principles of Good Governance of the Olympic and Sports Movement.
Pursuant to Recommendation 18 (Strengthen Support to Athletes) and Recommendation 27 (Good Governance) of the IOC’s Olympic Agenda 2020, it is compulsory for organizations that belong to the Olympic Movement to adopt the Basic Universal Principles of Good Governance by taking steps to safeguard athletes from harassment and abuse in sport. The Commission was established as part of this key agenda from the IOC.
The same guidelines are defined and underscored in the IOC Agenda 2020+5 which take GNOC to 2025 in terms of ensuring Safe Sport for and by, all athletes.
