    It's amazing how technology helps people who lose their body parts to regain physical ability, even becoming Olympic Athlete. However, I won't be happy to see the future Olympic crowded with human armed with equipments of all kinds. Then will it gradually turn to be a competition of bioengineering development? Technology might even enhance an athlete's physical ability to a further level, way over the original purpose of these inventions of artificial anatomy. What is going to mean to be an athlete at that time then?
