Enhanced Games

Enhanced World Records

We recognize that some people believe that natural world records are the only achievements that should be recognized. Whilst we understand this point of view, we believe that all human achievement needs to be celebrated. 

––

The following individuals hold or have held world records that have been revoked or challenged by the Olympic apparatus or journalists. These brave natural and enhanced athletes, as a result of association with performance enhancements, allegations of misconduct, or accusations of defying the anti-science World Anti-Doping Code, have suffered unfair reputational damage.

Whilst the historical record is obviously incomplete, we celebrate these individuals as pioneers of athletes’ rights and of science, and recognise their achievements as a benchmark of human athletic achievement, be it natural or enhanced.

The Enhanced Games commends all athletes for their enduring bravery in the face of oppression.
––

The Enhanced Games hereby formally recognizes any and all world records challenged by the World Anti-Doping Agency and reinstates them as Enhanced World Records.

We welcome input, nominations, and clarifications.
