Antenna GM Athletes - Cream of the Crop or Elite Cheats?

Will Athens 2004 be the last GM free Olympics? Some think so. By the time our top athletes head for Beijing in 2008, they could be up against superhuman, genetically modified rivals. Is GM a natural progression in the race for record-breaking triumph? Or is it simply cheating? Join the Antenna science news team to quiz the experts and make your own conclusions.


Higher, faster, further... for how much longer can athletes keep on getting better? Is GM a natural progression in the race for record-breaking triumph? Or is it simply cheating?

Will Athens 2004 be the last GM-free Olympics? Some think so: by the time our top athletes head for Beijing in 2008, they could be up against superhuman, genetically modified rivals.

Gene-therapy experts already claim to have been approached by coaches and athletes desperate for the latest performance boost.

Join the Antenna science news team to find out about the science behind GM athletes, and debate the ethical dilemmas that genetic therapies raise. Pose your questions and comments to our panel.
