IOC to meet with governments, others on March 1

IOC President Jacques Rogge says the Olympic committee will meet with governments and other interested organizations in March to discuss illegal betting in sports.
Rogge says illegal betting is a threat that needs to be met with the same "seriousness and unity" as doping and that the IOC is "strengthening communication channels with all parties."
Rogge spoke Thursday at a symposium on the issue.
He said the IOC will convene a meeting on March 1 with sports officials, governments, public international bodies and sports betting operators.
