So, where do we draw the line? As of right now, in order to compete, competing athletes require all the best science to train - every muscle twitch is recorded, every movement analyzed by a team of biophysicists. Meals are planned years in advance, measurements are taken daily, supplements are mixed to the border of doping. Is this even a test of physical human limits anymore? Does anyone outside the respective committees even care? Do we need an Enhanced Olympics? There was a similar uproar in baseball when Charles Waitt wore a sissy device called 'a glove' to help prevent bruising and breaking his hand. And that wasn't even out of necessity.
(If I can find a YouTube of "The Word" segment (the word was "Level Playing Field"), I will post it.)
