Baseball season opener: Athletes and ethicists look at fairness in sport
Date:4/1/2010

e effects. "The perpetrators will almost certainly fail," Friedmann writes. "In the course of their premature misadventures, they are far more likely to do harm than to provide athletic advantage."

  • "Sex Typing for Sport." Under what circumstances should sex testing be done on athletes? What determines whether someone is female if she was raised a girl, or if she has certain biological traits? The International Olympic Committee and the International Association of Athletic Federations tried to answer these questions in the wake of the controversy last summer around the sex testing of Caster Semenya, the South African runner whose female sex was questioned. But the answers have scientific shortcomings because they don't take into account the range of medical conditions that can affect sexual development and testosterone levels, writes Alice Dreger, professor of medical humanities and bioethics at Northwestern University.

  • "The Biological Passport." Hopes are high among sports federations and antidoping agencies that the biological passport a new way to identify doping by looking for the lingering biological markers of the use of banned substances rather than the substances themselves will have two major benefits: it will catch more cheaters and improve the culture of sports by rewarding the athletes who are clean. Susan Gilbert, staff writer for The Hastings Center, explains how the biological passport works, which organizations are using it, and what the skeptics say.
