Spectre of gene doping raises its head as athletes see possibilities


Spectre of gene doping raises its head as athletes see possibilities(2001) The Times, by D. Powell

This article made me smile when I was putting these pages together. It begins by relating to the claim for the first human clone - we've heard that a few time since haven't we. I even wrote a paper about it! This article arrives alongside the UCL meeting in 2001. The paper indicates that research wil arise out of a legitimate project to promote health. From this, I conclude that the bigger problems for sport arise, not from cheaters trying to undermine the system, but from people who have been modified just to be healthier.
