Controversial Enhanced Olympics to be a reality by year end?

Controversial Enhanced Olympics to be a reality by year end?  The Enhanced Games are causing controversy and making headlines as the event allows the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Founder Dr. Aron D’Souza has received criticism and backlash over the event, with accusations that it is unsafe, unfair, and a mockery of the actual Olympics. In response, D’Souza maintains that safety is his top priority, stating that athletes will undergo rigorous testing before competing, and medical professionals will be on hand at all times.

While the Enhanced Games may seem grossly unfair, D’Souza asserts that everyone will be honest about the use of drugs in the event, which is not the case in the actual Olympics. He even cites research pointing to widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs by Olympic athletes, asserting that the Enhanced Games will make the Olympics cleaner, more natural, and create a fairer and more level playing field.

Concerns have also been raised about the safety of the games. In response, D’Souza claims that everything will be done under clinical supervision. In fact, he argues that for any drug use, it’s safer to enhance yourself with the help of clinical advice and supervision.Despite the controversy, the games have drawn interest from Olympic athletes, in track and field events who have struggled financially. D’Souza maintains that such athletes are excited to make real money and gain the opportunity to grow their fame.

Big Corporate Investments

The Enhanced Games have already received significant investment, including from PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel, who has invested in the event’s “multi-million dollar” seed round. Thiel asserts that athletes should be fairly compensated and is joined in investment by cryptocurrency investor Balaji Srinivasan and biotech investor Christian Angermayer.

The Enhanced Games have the potential to revolutionize the way we view sporting events and enhance the use of science in sports. However, they also pose a significant risk to athletes’ health and undermine the integrity and fairness of sporting competition. Critics argue that D’Souza’s assertion that the event will make the Olympics cleaner and more natural is a cynical marketing ploy, and point to the dangers of allowing the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Furthermore, critics believe that the message it sends to young athletes about the value of hard work, diligence, and perseverance is wrong. Nevertheless, the Enhanced Games are set to proceed, with the first event potentially taking place later this year.
