Ethical standards in sports journalism, especially with regard to doping, were the theme of a five-day workshop that took place from 5 to 9 November 2007 in Beijing, China.
Organized by UNESCO in close cooperation with the Communication University of China (CUC), the workshop was designed for Chinese sports journalists who will be reporting on the 29th Olympic Games in 2008.

40 sports journalists from national broadcasters, newspapers and news portals attended the training. The trainers were international experienced sports journalists and experts in anti-doping from Asia and Europe. Together with Chinese Olympic officers they addressed the issue of a multi-perspective curriculum in sports journalism.

The participants expressed their satisfaction by the training they received during the workshop. They acquired a cross-cultural set of strategies, skills and tools for reporting on difficult aspects of the forthcoming Olympic Games. They stressed the importance of the increased awareness of ethical issues in sports journalism.
