According to a press release on the bargain,”all of sports contests covered from the IOC’s Integrity Betting Intelligence System (IBIS), including the events in the Olympic Games and also a range of competitions organised by International Federations are implied in the arrangement.”

IOC’s Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer P??querette Girard said that this on the SportIM bargain:
“In 2013, we found our Intelligence Betting Integrity System to collate alerts and information on match manipulation and, ever sincewe have optimized the mechanics. We’ve identified accountable organisations that can assist our international effort to avoid corruption and so are thrilled about our new partnership with Professional Sports.
“They’ll provide added value by making available their specialist skills, knowledge and technological expertise during the Olympic Games and other major sporting competitions organised by the IFs.”
And Professional Sports CEO Mark Locke:
“We’re very happy to partner with the IOC at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and beyond. The Olympic Games represent the pinnacle of world sport and will be the best platform to showcase the values of friendship, excellence and esteem upon which game is built. We look forward to sharing our expertise and intelligence to aid the prevention of game manipulation as a way to further safeguard the integrity of these extraordinary and major competitions”
