Rethinking Enhancement in Sport

Abstract
Recent events in the sporting world have made explicit the moral, political, and cultural characteristics of discussions surrounding the use of enhancement technology in sport. Within the last 5 years, the landscape of sport technologies and policy has changed dramatically and it is reasonable to consider that further innovations are imminent. Elite sports constitute arenas for convergent technological applications where a range of applications demonstrates the embeddedness of sports within technological structures. The prospects for even more radical technologies to influence athletic performance grow continually as progress in nanotechnology, stem cells, and genetics gain strength
