Ian Creasey. The Prize Beyond Gold. (Asimovs, Dec 2010).

Fairly leaden rumination on issues around sporting achievement in the future – records increasingly difficult to beat, the struggle to remain ‘natural’, and the lengths athletes will go to succeed.

There’s a lot of internal and external discussion, consideration of issues like ‘asymptotic curves’, and in short it feels much more like a story you would find in Analog than Asimovs.
