Sadly, this may be one of the last Olympics we have without genetically-enhanced athletes :crazy:

Anyone who's read this months SciAm knows what I'm talking about :wink:

ya...it's been that way for some time time now...genetically enhanced athletes...

i'm one for enhancing anyone's performance in anyway possible...steroids...elevatino training...etc...but that's not the point of this...

i love the olympics...histroy...intensity...spirit...love...

especially the sports i love and don't get to see near enough and the ones i had to leave behind to pursue others....

No it's certainly NOT been that way for some time now...gene therapy is still far from the reach of any pro athletes. I suppose it's POSSIBLE that a small handful have gotten their greedy hands on this technology...but it hasn't even been proven to work in humans yet so I HIGHLY doubt it.

i don't put it past anyone to do anything...a lot of countries and people will do anything to win...especially throughout the world and the olympics...but what i was orginially gettin' at... there are a lot of people out there...especially competing throughout the world...that will do anything to win...includng blood doping...etc...i 2nd guess every training technique through the olympics because it goes beyond the sport through competing...

I watch the 100m sprint...because it's over within 10 seconds :smirk:

I have a lot of respect for TRUE athletes who push the limits of human potential...but have nothing but loathing for any "athlete" who tweaks his body with drugs and/or performance-enhancing medical procedures. If you don't consider that cheating...I'm not sure what else you could call it!

I get kinda bored by the olympics. I enjoy the martial arts (Judo, tai kwon do, wrestling), but I gotta wade through so much other crap, that I usually don't bother. Not to say that I don't have utmost respect for the atheletes, because I do. I just find it kinda boring.
