Abstract: The following discussion is one of the five thought-provoking dialogues in the Sport and Society series (February 8th-March 15th 2010) featuring Olympic and Paralympic athletes who have used their celebrity to make a difference in the world. The series was hosted by Intellectual Muscle: University Dialogues for the Vancouver 2010 Games, developed by Vancouver 2010 and the University of British Columbia, in collaboration with universities across Canada and The Globe and Mail. Abstract: As the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games approach Olympic athletes will come under close public scrutiny. Extraordinary records will be set and new technology will offer unexpected advantages that will challenge the boundaries of what is considered a level playing field. Given those challenges, how do we determine what is ethical and fair? These questions and more are explored with Richard Pound followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Jim Rupert and Beckie Scott.
