the performance enhancement methods of today and tomorrow.. the doping direction.

Today the Beijing Olympics 2008 came to a close. I was not following it very closely, but from the few impression that I get, it was a wonderful event. China can take pride in the way it has organised it. There would always be criticism, but I think the World has seen another dimension of the Dragon Empire. China also would also have learnt a few things out of this. Congratulations China!

I was just browsing for the Doping Counter Hits of Beijing 2008. I didn't get there but I reached some interesting sites.. thought I will share with you.

Today its the age of Performance Enhancement Drugs.
Tomorrow it will be the Gene Doping. Although cant really be sure if its so futuristic because it might be here already.

A German television report on the availability of gene doping in China, which aired just a few days before the Olympics, stunned anti-doping experts. In the documentary by ARD television, a reporter posing as an American swimming coach met with a doctor who is the head of the gene-therapy department of an unnamed Chinese hospital. The hidden-camera report shows the Chinese doctor, with his face blurred, offering gene-therapy treatment to the undercover reporter in return for $24,000.

Quote from the full link is given below

Interesting links..

Is 'gene doping' the next Olympic threat?

an unofficial list of banned athletes..

The nonsense of Olympic doping rules.

couple of years back, I had a posting on Marion Jones (click here to see the post). I am no expert in sports drugs, but I had felt at that time that something is smelling bad. An year later (Oct 2007), she admitted that she Doped and all medals of Olympics 2000 and subsequent medals were stripped off her.

So what you see is not always what it is, more so in this case.
