Cyborgs!

here's a really interesting story: http://tinyurl.com/2eztys this guy has had carbon fiber lower legs since infancy, and is now kicking ass at sprinting. he is hoping to be allowed to compete in 2008 Olympics, not the Paralympics, which occur just after the regular competition. Do his high tech feet give him an unfair advantage? or is he working on a comparable scale to runners with natural feet? the most amazing bit in the article is that his coach's name is Ampie. here's more if the article is a dead link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_Pistorius http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyborgs
