9780029147658: Mortal Engines: Human Engineering and the Transformation of Sport

Hoberman argues that the example of Ben Johnson was the logical outcome of a sporting ethos which seeks ever greater speed and strength - the creation of a man-machine - and the financial corruption of the Olympic ethos. Normal human limits are being exceeded but at a great physical and perhaps moral cost as sport becomes increasingly de-humanized.
