 Transvision 2002 Sports Panel
The case for allowing a disabled golfer to use a cart, or for banning the use of performance-enhancing drugs or apparel, may depend on whether sports in general, or particular sports, are seen as tests of various skills, as occasions to display such virtues as tenacity, ingenuity, or equanimity, as communal activity, or as entertainment.
Proposed rules or reforms may serve to increase the accuracy of the test, the intensity of the competition, the inclusiveness of the activity or the suspense of the entertainment.
Panelists will address such issues as the meaning of fairness in sports, the social construction of competitive classes, the claimed naturalness or artificiality of various forms of enhancement, and the merits of different strategies for increasing the participation of excluded individuals and groups.
