Summary

Can virtual reality make you want to do sports? Have athletes reached their limits in terms of records? Can you spot a future champion at an early age? Does the public have a responsibility in doping?... All these are some of the many questions, answered in the 12 short films of the series Sports, Science and Society.
The improvement of accessories and their transformations have allowed athletes to optimize their performance by going ever higher, ever faster. This transformation of equipment has therefore enabled athletes with disabilities to practice their discipline and also improve their performance at a high level. Anne Marcellini, sociologist, explains the status of parasports in the world if sport and in society.
