The IAAF is pleased to announce that an athlete who is using banned performance enhancing limbs is eligible to compete. I guess public pressure won out over doing the right thing for the sport.

How ironic that I just came across this article this morning and found myself thinking “Multiply strength and stamina as much as 20 times? I wonder how long until there are robotic suit sports.” It may seem like a stretch but, if a performance enhancing prosthetic is allowed, where is the line drawn?
