Last month QAS Senior Personal Development Advisor, Adam Woolnough, attended the Sports Corruption: Transnational Perspectives workshop at the University of Queensland. The workshop was part of the larger, four day, Organised Crime and Corruption Forum held by the university, which aimed to explore the challenges surrounding the topical issue of organised crime and corruption.

Adam sat alongside former Australian fast bowler and Cricket Australia Board Member, Michael Kasprowicz, and Detective Senior Sargent, Jason Hindmarsh, from the Queensland Police Organised Crime Investigation Unit. Each offering a unique perspective on the topic at hand, the panel participants shared their opinions on sport integrity in Australia and discussed the risk factors, preventative measures and vulnerability of the nation’s sport integrity in the future.

QAS Sport Performance Innovation and Knowledge Excellence (SPIKE) research scholar, Reynald Lastra, was also invited to present his research project 'A conceptual framework for the regulation of betting-motivated corruption: A multiple case study of corruption management in Australian sport' and host the workshop’s Q&A component. As a PhD candidate at Griffith University’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Reynald offered insight into his research findings and complimented the discussion between the forum attendees and panel participants.
