Will the genetic design of athletes destroy sport … or will it lead to a new and extraordinary age of athletic achievement?

Exploring a new territory in sport and ethics, this edited collection contains some of the best new writing that has emerged from the debates concerning the uses of genetic technologies to improve sport performance. Issues covered include:

* gene technology and sports ethics
* genetic testing in sports
* gene technology and the sporting ethos
* gene technology and gender equality in sport.

This cutting-edge text is the first on the subject to analyze gender specific questions that arise from genetically modified sport and is likely to provoke further debate in the world of sport and bio-ethics.

Contributors include Lincoln Allison, Ruth Chadwick, Arne Ljungqvist, Andy Miah, Christian Munthe, Bengt Saltin, Angela Schnieder and many more.
