The world of sport in recent years has been rocked by highly visible ethical failures and blatant corruption that has stretched from the local and college level to the pinnacles of international competition.  Whether it is financial corruption in international soccer, bribery related to the awarding of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs by Russia in the Olympic Games, or the vast recruiting bribery and fraud case in American college basketball, sport recently has seen some of its greatest scandals.

What are the forces behind these crises in sport?  How do governing bodies and other leaders prevent a perilous loss of faith in sport and its principles of honesty, integrity, and fair play? What can be done long term about corruption in sport?
