Born to Ruin by Liam Hogan
People say it’s cruel, akin to slavery, but you know they were born to run. The joy on their faces when they cross the finishing line. How could you deprive them of that?
Others say that science is ruining sport. But until you’ve seen eight Usain Bolt’s line up against each other, at the start of the World Cloning One Hundred Metres final, you’ve not seen the best that competitive sport has to offer.
Nine point two seven seconds and a photo finish. Wow! Looks like Google’s Bolt came third, Petrochina takes Silver, and, once again! Monsanto takes the Gold.
