Enhanced Games

Event Plan

How Athletes Become Superheroes

Key Differentiators

When developing the Enhanced Games, we took the very best of the existing sports leagues and distilled the best qualities from each. We are reinventing sports from a blank slate, unencumbered by anachronistic legacy systems. This survey formed the backbone of the event plan of the Enhanced Games, which seeks to be the most efficient international sports event.

The Enhanced Games aims to be the safest international sporting event in history. We embrace the inclusion of science in sports, and we fundamentally believe that the choice to use enhancements is a personal one. In order to keep our athletes safe during competition, we are introducing a mandated pre-competition full-system medical screening protocol, which will help monitor cardiac risks, and other health markers.

Backed by billionaires and the world’s leading venture capital firms, Enhanced will be able to self-fund the running of the Enhanced Games – and highlight the inherent wastefulness of the Olympic Movement.

The Enhanced Games is designed to incorporate the technological and social advances of the 21st Century. Because the Games have been designed by athletes, for athletes, athletes’ rights are central to our decision making – which is why we have a fair remuneration structure, and are protecting our athletes’ rights to bodily autonomy. Full details of the compensation structure will be announced in mid-2024. After all, if it’s your body, it should be your choice. By embracing science and not drug-testing, athletes competing in the Enhanced Games will be able to use medicine and performance therapies that help them perform at their best, on an open, fair, and honest playing field.

The Enhanced Games is a new sports league, built from the ground up. It’s time to make sports better.

Reuse Existing Infrastructure

Compete in Division 1 university sports stadiums.

Pay Athletes Fairly

Reward athletic excellence.

Break World Records

Incentivize peak athletic performance.

Enhancements

Performance enhancements have always been an integral part of sports. Yet, the latter half of the 20th century has seen the latest breakthroughs in synthetic biology closeted and stigmatized.

When used correctly, the inclusion of performance enhancements can have significantly positive effects on the results of training and exercise routines. Simply put, performance enhancements augment the effects of training, and help athletes reach the true peak of their athletic ability.

Rather than penalizing the widespread use of performance enhancements, the Enhanced Movement embraces enhanced athletes. We want to see what humans are truly capable of.

Core Sports

Ultimately, the Enhanced Movement believes in operational efficiency and its desire to reward individual human excellence. Accordingly, a four-stage selection process was employed to determine the sports that best aligned with these values.

01. Sourcing

Sourced list of active and retired events at Summer Olympics.

Added non-Olympic options in popular demand, such as MMA.

02. Elimination

Eliminated team sports to focus on individual performance.

Eliminated ball sports to focus on speed, strength, and endurance.

04. Selection


Emphasized operational efficiency and public interest.

Discussed outcome with Enhanced’s leadership team. Executive decision was taken.


03. Filtering

Tabulated data points with sports as the dominant variable.

Defined 25 non-dominant variables, and corresponding values.

We have selected five core categories of sports – athletics, aquatics, gymnastics, strength, and combat. Whilst medals will be awarded to the best Enhanced athletes in each event, the ultimate monetary award will go to the peerless athletes who set new world records, thereby pushing the perceived limit of what we believe is possible.

Combat

Strength

Athlete Remuneration

Enhanced will deliver a high-impact yet cost-efficient games, so that we can share the profits with the athletes, based upon a model devised by the Enhanced Athletes Commission.

The Olympic Games generate substantial revenues almost unparalleled across the sporting world – to the tune of $7.6 billion in quadrennial revenue. Yet, these streams of gold don't trickle down to the athletes whose shoulders the Olympics rest upon; a 2012 study by former Olympic athletes found that just 6 percent of the US Olympic Committee's $795 million expense budget actually goes to athletes as cash payments.

The underpayment of athletes is the core moral failing of the Olympic Movement; it is a vestige of the aristocratic sentiment behind the outdated unpaid 'amateur' requirement.

All athletes competing in the Enhanced Games will be paid. Eligible athletes will receive a base salary and compete for prize winnings, which will be larger than any other comparable event in history. The exact prize pool and compensation structure will be announced in mid 2024.

At Enhanced, we want to reward excellence, and put our athletes first.

Embrace Capitalism

We reject the kleptocracy of so-called “not-for-profit” sports federations. Unlike the Olympics, which is technically a non-profit organization, the Enhanced Games is a privately funded for-profit organization. This means that, whilst the Olympics relies on taxpayer funding, Enhanced (just like Formula 1) is able to raise private capital to pay its athletes and finance the organization of the Games.
Backed by billionaires and the world's leading venture capital firms, Enhanced will be able to self-fund the running of the Enhanced Games – and highlight the inherent wastefulness of the Olympic Movement.

Reuse Infrastructure

The costs of hosting the Olympic Games have skyrocketed over the past 20 years; a growing number of economists argue that the benefits of hosting the Games are at best exaggerated and at worst nonexistent, according to the Council on Foreign Relations.

*Just on Infrastructure

The Enhanced Games will avoid this destructive and wasteful use of government funding by using and reusing existing infrastructure – the Enhanced Games are designed to be hosted at a Division One university campus. No new stadiums will need to be built; no cities will be driven into debt.

Our model will allow us to truly reward athletic excellence, by sharing more of our profits with our athletes.

Enhanced World Records

We are only scratching the surface of what the human body is capable of. The incorporation of the latest scientific breakthroughs in athletes' performance therapies will find our athletes both stronger and faster.

Whilst gold, silver, and bronze medals will be awarded in each competition, the ultimate goal is to set a new world record – which will be rewarded with a prize bounty that will reflect the magnitude of the breakthrough.

The Most Inclusive Sports League in History

The Enhanced Games will be the most inclusive sports league in history. Whether you are natural, adaptive, or enhanced, an amateur or a former Olympian, you will be eligible to apply to compete in the first Enhanced Games.

All adults are welcome; it’s time to see what humanity is truly capable of.
