I would argue that while there probably are some structural and weight benefits of the prosthesis, they probably don't come close to the micro-control that a foot and toes give you. And as it's been pointed out, why is he the only one to be benefiting this much from this technology? That suggests his success is rooted in his athletic exceptionalism. If someone is one of the best in the world, should they be prevented from competitions against their peers because they have artificial limbs? It doesn't seem like they should, but as we advance our technology, we may need to draw some lines...
