I somehow have a feeling that it is Paralympics, and not Olympics, which can be the centre of technological development in the future. While indeed sports science has developed significantly in recent years, it can be noted that technologies in human body extension often starts from being assistive technologies to help the differently able. The first few notable [proto-cyborgs] (or are they already real cyborgs?) are people with disabilities. Only one of five people mentioned in that article (Kevin Warwick) is able-bodied. With increasing understanding on how human life can benefit from technological advancement, I foresee that probably in the not-so-near future, cyborg technologies will become affordable to many, and Paralympics might include events in which real cyborgs compete.
