Yes, he should.

We already are unequal. e.g., East Africans already have physiological advantages when it comes to distance running. Just as an example, before Said Aouita (Morocco) did any kind of athletic training, he was timed over 3000m and ran 8:15 or so. Very few men have run that timing in my country even after years of training.

Players from developed countries have far better training, nutrition, medicine, equipment, etc compared to those from poor nations.

We've already had a similar discussion a year or so back regarding Caster Semenya.

There's enough people breaking the rules or blurring the line between what's normal and not through drugs, blood transfusion, altitude training (some are questioning even this now), gender/transgender etc.
