The New York time is reporting that the great cyclist Lance Armstrong is almost ready to admit to the thing that everyone knew he was doing in the first place: doping. Armstrong has already been defamed, having his Tour de France wins stripped from him and receiving a lifetime ban by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
For some reason, Armstrong wants to be allowed to compete again by confessing to doping of the past, perhaps so he can earn money by competing in triathlons and other similar events. His lawyer, Tim Herman told USA Today: “There are no ongoing discussions with USADA or (World Anti-Doping Agency chief) David Howman as reported in the NYT. That is the only comment at this time.”
Hermans says that he has no knowledge of Armstrong seeking to admit any form of wrong-doing.
“When, and if, Lance has something to say, there won’t be any secret about it.”
Armstrong, 41, who recovered from testicular cancer that had spread to his lungs and brain, had his seven Tour de France titles stripped to go along with the lifetime ban. Although he has vehemently denied doping, Armstrong’s athletic career crumbled under the weight of a massive report by USADA detailing allegations of drug use by Armstrong and his teammates on his U.S. Postal Service teams.
The report caused Armstrong to lose most of his personal corporate sponsor, and he recently stepped down from the board of Livestrong, the cancer-fighting charity he founded in 1997.
