Lance Armstrong May Admit to Doping

NEW YORK  – Disgraced former cycling champion Lance Armstrong may soon admit to using performance-enhancing drugs, according to the New York Times.

The Times is reporting that Armstrong would admit to the doping violations in order to persuade anti-doping officials to restore his eligibility so that he can resume his athletic career.

Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles last fall after a report pointed to “overwhelming” evidence that Armstrong was involved in doping.

He has previously denied the allegations.

    Fair play or not, Lance Armstrong is a remarkable athlete and inspiration to many. As long as not all competition participants were tested by same standards, the declaration of foul play is not valid. The rule should be "speak up now or be silent forever" for those technicians that quantify substances. If tests are only run on winners, but not those that came ind 2nd and 3rd then its not fair.

    USADA Report on Allegations Against Lance Armstrong – seen on WSJ website.

    online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444799904578048673157864186.html

    I'm sorry by after walking through the first 28 pages USADA report — all I read is about what other bicyclist were doing, not what Lance did or did not do. Anecdotes of friends that heard another friend talking about his conspiracy theory. USADA: If you can not make a simple test that finds the drug, then quit looking for it. The USDA report contains self bolstering statements like "overwhelming evidence" like page 7. If it is truly overwhelming you don't need to say it, just give the facts. Thanks WSJ for showing the report.
