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.
