Modern sport is a contradictory phenomenon; on the one hand an emphasis on winning and on citius, altius, fortius (faster, higher, stronger) makes the drive for improved performance paramount. Athletes, coaches and sports scientists constantly search for techniques, supplements or modifications that will deliver that elusive ''edge''. Yet at the same time, sport remains grounded in notions of ''fair play'' and good health, a balance between body and mind.

The single-minded pursuit of achievement rests uneasily on these traditional foundations, and the application of technologies to the body has often been viewed with particular suspicion. This text explores the controversies associated with sport, technology and the body.
