The history of sports is really the history of drugs in sports. From Roman gladiators hopped up on herbal stimulants to distance runners downing brandy-and-strychnine cocktails (a combination that helped American Tom Hicks win the 1904 Olympic marathon), athletes have always found ways to augment their bodies.
Steroids and human growth hormone are yesterday's headlines. The future of performance enhancement belongs to a dizzying array of medical wizardry, including manipulating stem cells and inducing euphoric mental states, that could make the cheaters stronger and faster than ever—and catching them nearly impossible. Launch the gallery for a look at what's coming.
How about a high protein diet, and a good solid workout? Isn't that what it is all about? The athlete should be competing fairly with everyone! People in countries without the genetic research capabilities are already at a disadvantage, I thought sports were suppose to be a friendly competition, and unlike war, you should play fairly and NOT exploit every technical advantage. I invented a new workout device that is cheap, portable, and easy to use which can accompany a good diet to achieve results without doping.
You can see it at:
It´s a tricky subject: It is unfair for other athletes that may not have access to that kind of treatment, however, if I were an athlete, and I would have a possibility to overcome myself, the temptation would be overpowering...Still, I think it´s unfair for all the other athletes that may not choose to go under such therapy. I guess that if there are many athletes that choose to modify their DNA they should open a new category just for them...
Here is short video about Gene Doping:
First of all I'd like to say I hate seroids I think using is cheating. But, I still know that people get bored watching the same thing over and over again. People want to see bigger and better athletes. They want to see world records broken and broken again. I'm not supporting athlete's use of steroids but, I am saying people want a great show from their athletes and unknowingly want genetically enhanced athletes.
