Athletic Enhancement

Victor Conte of Balco, admitted supplier of anabolic steroids to pro athletes:

“Steroids can help a female sprinter to lower her 100m time by about four-tenths of a second or four metres faster. The effects of steroids upon male 100m sprinters are about two-tenths of a second or two metres faster.”

Perhaps. But what about genetic enhancement?
