#146 what is the human limit?

Can world athletes compete at any international events without taking performance enhanced drugs?

What is the use of competing when an athlete takes something to boost his performance? Will he honestly be proud of the fact that he/she is the fastest person in world? Is this a show of human prowess? What is the use of clocking the fastest time then — i.e. with the aid of high performance drugs? Will these drugs not give side-effects eventually? 

On the intellectual front, either an individual has it or none…so why not the physical aspect of the athletes?

Talent is based on man’s natural abilities of an individual through the nourishment of food and physical skills — without the use of enhanced performance drugs.

In the forthcoming Youth Olympics in 2010, will one see the teens in some countries take enhanced performance drugs just to win the event? Will this drug thwart one’s growth? Will there be freaked humans?

If so, will there be a tampering of genes to enhance one’s performance?

So Bart (William Shakespeare) was right when he wrote in ‘As You Like It’

All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players:

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts,…

 

Wow! So can I conclude that the Olympic Games offered to China was really a political ploy on ‘human rights issue’ by the IOC eventhough this was not a unanimous vote?

The drama is becoming more interesting as each day unfolds.

Hm…what about the forthcoming Youth Olympics Games that will be held in Singapore 2010? The toss was between Russia’s Moscow? and Singapore…both have issues — I believe protest is illegal in Singapore.

If this is the case, Singapore had better consider exit considering the monies and future stresses.
