So, we have the Olympics, and we have the Para-Olympics.

You know what we really need? Enhanced Olympics.

By which I mean a version of the Olympics where the Athletes are allowed to take performance enhancing drugs. Modern athletes use all sorts of science to enhance their performance already, special diets, special shoes, special swimming costumes. Why not just go that one step further and allow a category of Drug Enhanced. It would be totally awesome. Imagine watching some guy run 100m in 3.5 secs. Or Bench 800kgs.

And while we are at it, should they be allowed to use special shoes? Shouldn't there be a Olympics aprroved Trainer to even the playing field. Same with swimming costumes, maybe even training regimes.

Ok, there are risks involved, but loads of sports involve a level of risk. Motorsports, free-climbing, diving, all have risks.

Nah. Make them take performance reducing drugs. 100m while high. I'd watch that.

I am totally with you on this.

I also think there should be an F0, like F1 but you can put whatever tech or fuel you like in your car, so long as it isn't dangerous to the other racers.

That would also be great. I hate the whole thing in F1 where they are only allowed to use X thing. Why bother with a constructors championship if they all have to be the same?

We had that here in the US with baseball for quite a while. The numbers were inflated and some exciting things happened. It was fun to watch as long as you were willing to put it out of your mind that these guys were slowly killing themselves for our amusement (and millions of dollars.)


Was this an officially sactioned thing?

I see a world that's tired and scared of living on the edge too long.

I couldn't find a better clip, since Hulu is blocked up here.

Ross "Nickel" Rebagliati tested positive for THC after winning gold in snowboarding during the Nagano games.

They initially stripped him of the medal, but gave it back when they noticed THC wasn't on their list of banned substances.
