The continuing bans placed on the use of certain performance-enhancing substances by athletes would indicate that not all technological and scientific developments may be appropriate or beneficial in elite level sport. Issues that have arisen out of the drug bans form the basis of 'Sport, Ethics and Technology'. This study is essentially a philosophical examination of the nature and significance of the relationship between high performance sport and technology. As the title implies, the relationship is assessed from an ethical perspective with the intention of providing certain normative criteria from which we may assess the appropriateness or inappropriateness of certain technological applications in elite level sport.
