Faster, higher, stronger, said Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the Modern Olympic Games. And since 1896, whenever each Olympiad has convened, that motto has been realized. This book argues that the pressure exerted upon athletes for faster, higher, stronger performances has dehumanized the athlete.
