Summary
"For elite athletes seeking a winning advantage, manipulation of their own genetic code has become a realistic possibility. In Genetic Technology and Sport, experts from sports science, genetics, philosophy, ethics and international sports administration describe the potential applications of the new technology and debate the questions surrounding its use." "Genetic Technology and Sport is an accessible, informed and detailed exploration of the key issues surrounding sport and genetic modification. It raises profound moral and ethical questions about the value of sport, and vital practical questions about its governance. For sports professionals and administrators - and anyone concerned for the future of sport - this is essential reading."--BOOK JACKET
