IOC Athletes' Support Programs

The IOC Athletes Programs

This initiative is part of the implementation of the IOC Athletes’ Commission (AC) strategy to further strengthen support to athletes throughout their sporting and non-sporting career, and ensure they remain at the heart of the Olympic Movement.


Athlete365 is an IOC initiative created by athletes, for athletes. Its purpose is to support athletes throughout their journey in sport on and off the field. Athlete365 provides tools, services and a strong global network to help athletes tackle the challenges that come with competing at the elite level.

The anti-doping updates and the Rule 50 were discussed during the IOC Athletes’ Commission conference call with the Global Network of Athlete Representatives on the 2nd of December 2019. 
A summary of this call was published on Athlete365 here; and also tweeted the article here. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any feedback or comments and feel free to get in touch by emailing at [email protected]

Safeguarding Athletes Toolkit 

This toolkit aims to assist National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and International Federations (IFs) in the development of policies and procedures to safeguard athletes from harassment and abuse in sport.

The IOC’s mission is to place athletes at the heart of the Olympic Movement, and Olympic Agenda 2020 sets out the strategic roadmap for this. This includes Recommendation 18: Strengthen support to athletes. Through this recommendation, the IOC has taken significant steps to safeguard athletes from harassment and abuse in sport.
