Bionic Olympics Coming in 2016

‘Bionic Olympics’ Coming in 2016

Quote
Couple the Defense Research Projects Agency’s major and well-funded interest in prosthetics with the grit shown by amputee veterans to excel in sports and you’ve got a heck of start for building a U.S. team for the first-ever bionic Olympics.
 
 The Cybathlon, an international competition for athletes using advanced prosthetics, is to be held in October 2016 in Zurich, Switzerland.
 
“The competitions are comprised by different disciplines that apply the most modern powered knee prostheses, wearable arm prostheses, powered exoskeletons, powered wheelchairs, electrically stimulated muscles and novel brain-computer interfaces,” according to the games’ official website.

 The games are being organized on behalf of the Swiss National Competence Center of Research in Robotics.

As good as that might sound I have a BETTER idea that would bring in record viewers....

I want to see an Olympics where you can take all the drugs, steroids or genetic enhancements you want... I want to see guys throwing Volkswagens instead of discus or watch a guy throw a javelin 700 yards...powerlifting would even be interesting to watch then.  :P
