Barriers and enablers of clean sport
Hello and welcome to the second issue of the Clean Sport Alliance newsletter.
In today's newsletter we are pleased to share two further video outputs from our RESPECT EU Erasmus+ Collaborative Partnership project, ahead of our Clean Sport Insight Forum in December.
The first output has been produced by Dr Laurie Patterson, Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology in the Carnegie School of Sport at Leeds Beckett University. Laurie highlights the barriers and enablers of clean sport, based on a comprehensive meta-synthesis of 100 qualitative studies.
The second output is the fifth and final Athlete Voice video, featuring British endurance athlete Andrew Hayes. Through the media of film, we have provided first person accounts of clean sport, told by the athletes themselves.

Yours in sport,
The Clean Sport Alliance
2nd Clean Sport Insight Forum
8th - 9th December | free online virtual event
BARRIERS AND ENABLERS TO CLEAN SPORT
To guide anti-doping education program development, Dr Laurie Patterson (Leeds Beckett University) provides an overview of the barriers and enablers of clean sport, derived from the findings of a comprehensive and theoretically-guided meta-synthesis of 100 qualitative research studies.
A wide range of barriers and enablers were identified which influenced participants' capability, opportunity and motivation to participate in a doping-free sporting environment. These are considered to help guide anti-doping programs.

Andrew Heyes' Voice
In 2019, we invited numerous international athletes to voice their thoughts and opinions on clean sport and anti-doping. In their own words they told us about the challenges of competing as clean athletes. This collaborative and participatory process led to the creation of the Athlete Voices video series.
Today, we are delighted to release our fifth and final video in the series, titled Andy's View.
