    Where do you draw the technology line? Top athletes' shoes and clothes are all carefully designed, high-tech pieces of equipment.

    I say make them all run naked.

    What about training regimes? Diet? Genetic advantages?

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Or just have a "druglympics" where everyone is allowed - encouraged - to shoot up as much as possible. It'd be fantastic to watch.

    @JuanKerr That is the way they used to do it. The guy who did the first 4 minute mile in 1787 ran naked.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2004/may/02/athletics.comment1

    That link is not a picture by the way of him running naked just the story. It would have had to be a painting anyway given the lack of invention of the camera.

    @THFourteen Didn't the brits or the aussie's give one of the developing nations' team their old kit which made a massive difference to their performance? I'm sure i saw something about it on Last Leg during the paras.

    Yeah, but why are the rules like that? If you're allowed to use cutting edge tech limb design, why are drugs automatically bad?
    His limbs don't give him much of an advantage though. His acceleration is much lower than that of an able bodied athlete. Once he's up to speed though he's a little bit faster than the average athlete. To use a gaming analogy, he's Bowser to everyone else's Toad or Yoshi.

    That's why he only competed in the 400m and 400m relay in the Summer Olympics. He'd have had no chance at any distance shorter than that due to his acceleration issues.

    @Mola_Ram We were discussing this over the summer. If athletes are going to take steroids regardless of rules, regulations or health risks then let them. Create a new category of nutter athlete roided out of their tiny minds.

    It would be amazing. You could put bets on whose heart will explode in what round of the races for example.

    ROID 'EM UP, i say, ROID 'EM UP!

    On a related note, I would very much like it if the Thunderdome was made into a real thing.

    The same applies to the regular Olympics as well - wealthy nations are lot more successful than poorer ones.

    You need to invest millions for golds, look at how Lottery money changed the shape of GB Olympics. We got 1 gold in 1996, the following year we started investment.

    @jellyhead

    Exactly. If you're going to be elite, the best you can possibly be, then I don't see why you should leave drugs out of the mix. Pull out *all* the stops.

    Let's face it, a lot of very elite atheletes get absolutely ruined by too much training, the stress and pressure of it all. Fuck it, if you're going to be a bear, be a grizzly.

    100 metres cannon fired sprint would be a spectacle, I think a few records would be broken. You'll need a sort of brick wall built at the finish line to protect the crowd though.

    Forget about humans, bring on the ROBOLYMPICS.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    @ecureuil ... and? It's their choice to enter and many are using illegal drugs now and may die. We're just allowing them to lift some of the burden of guilt and replace it with more roids. Which they want to take anyway.

    They get to be all they can be. We get to watch a bunch of roid nutters exploding. Win-Win.

    At the other end you could have another set of games for people who want to test their innate ability though. However, they would not be allowed anything. They're not allowed to train, they can't use any special kit. Hell, if they ever become unwell in their life, they just have suffer the consequences and put up with it. No surgery for fractures or antibiotics for infections. It's the Ron Swanson Games.

    Stick 'em in a Zorb and seal it up once they decide to become 'Straight Edge' athletes. Sorted.

    Let's get our ideas formalised and sent to the OCC or whoever runs this parade.

    Not to mention those around them. 'Roids are often found to be the cause of athletes who randomly kill their whole family and then themselves.

    More athletes would die, for sure. Interesting how many athletes are dying already though. Look at heart attacks in footballers for example.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    i'm not so sure they're down to drugs Leo but more to do with congenital defects not being picked up by screening.

    Like I said, fantastic to watch. From a safe distance.
