A Call for Positive Change as The Clean Sport Collective Launches
“United together for honesty, integrity and transparency in sport.”
Clean Sport Collective is a community of powerful voices comprised of athletes, brands, events, clubs, fans and public to support the pursuit of clean sport and athletics through the absence of performance enhancing drugs.
The program launched this morning with such high profile names as Jenny Simpson, Emma Coburn, Kara Goucher, Molly Huddle, Alysia Montano and was quickly joined in by Lauren Fleshman, Carrie Tollefson, trail heavy hitters Silke Koester, Darcy Piceu, Matt Flaherty, and Mike Wardian. The new non-profit was concieved by Boulder’s ModCraft Studio who works with top athletes and sports brands.
“I am honored to have been a small part of the making of the Clean Sport Collective,” said two-time Olympic marathoner Kara Goucher. I have realized that one of my most important goals in life is to promote clean sport, clean athletes and clean brands. Clean Sport Collective is the first step in getting people together who want to promote clean sport, and I couldn’t be more excited about watching it grow.”
The athlete pledge is simple:
“I pledge to honor myself, competitors, sponsors, sport and society by choosing to stay clean of performance enhancing drugs. Choosing to not play by the rules steals from hard working athletes who choose to do the right thing and challenges the health and integrity of sport. I will be a positive example in the community as an advocate and ambassador for clean sport. I pledge that I have and will always train clean, compete clean and live clean.”
Head on over to the CleanSport.org website, take the pledge, then share it on Instagram, Facebook or on Twitter to show your support for a clean sport.
