"Racism can’t be ignored. It won’t go away like a headache. Instead it’s more like malaria. It’s contagious and spreads. We have a duty to fight it." These statements came from Kevin Prince Boateng at the UN in Geneva where he gathered with the top directors of FIFA and UEFA to speak on racism in sport at the ways to defeat it.
La chaîne cryptée a décroché le contrat pour une trentaine de millions d'euros à la première chaîne qui diffusait les Grands Prix depuis 1992.
Lance Armstrong has admitted for the first time that he used steroids, EPO and PED during his cycling career. He claimed in a television interview with Oprah Winfrey that he would not have been able to win seven Tour de France titles without cheating, such was the prevalence of performance-enhancing drugs in the sport at the time.
The Guardian suggests that Oprah was the real dope for allowing Armstrong to evade answers to some of her questions, but I seriously doubt that any other broadcaster could have elicited a confession from the man. Forget the nitpicking over details, Armstrong has spilled the beans.
An International Ski Federation (FIS) initiative to promote snow sports among young people, of which the EBU is a partner, has inspired 435 events in 39 countries this coming Sunday (20 January) – three times the number in 2012.
The FIS announced the figures this week as winter resorts around the world make final preparations for the event, which occurs on the third Sunday in January each year.
The International Ski Federation (FIS) and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) will join forces to promote snow sports among the younger generations through FIS World Snow Day, which will take place for the second time on 20 January 2013.

Losing expensive sports rights can sometimes kindle new opportunities. YLE experienced this in 2011 when the company lost the Ice Hockey World Championship rights to the commercial company, MTV3/Bonnier.
I'm probably wrong, but I can't think of many sport programmes on TV or radio that are aimed at women, which makes YLE's Urheilukatu 2 a little bit special. Jere Nurminen explains how the show came about and discusses its ratings.
À quelques exceptions près (Tour de France, Roland-Garros), les équipes de France de football et de rugby constituent le dernier bastion des chaînes gratuites, car l’ensemble du sport est en train de passer sous la bannière des chaînes payantes.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights believes football is behind the times and must "catch up" with modern society.
BT's emergence as a serious challenger to BSkyB for sports rights continued after it was announced that the telecommunications giant has acquired ESPN's UK and Ireland TV channels business.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) and software giant SAP have launched a new platform which aims to provide fans with unprecedented levels of access to the statistics behind the sport. Offered free to all fans and media, the NBA’s unparalleled statistical offering will feature the league’s entire official statistics history, previously only available to league and NBA team personnel.
Lance Armstrong's doping admission to Oprah was a public relations nightmare in the making. While we can all agree that Lance would have been better-off not cheating at all (or at least confessing sooner), it's fairly clear that once he cheated and lied, he probably should have kept lying if he wanted to maintain his public standing.
Television rights to the Africa Cup of Nations have caused a stir as organisers battle illegal broadcasters using hi-tech modern-day piracy
Sports journalism has always inhabited a murky ethical zone that can make hard-news reporters uneasy. By nature of their jobs, sports reporters typically have a closer relationship with the players, coaches, venues and institutions they cover compared to their peers on the City Hall or crime beats. Their rules on everything from free food to fraternizing with sources are often more liberal than those for news reporters.
