Armstrong Admits to Accusations


Retired champion cyclist Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey to illegally using performanceenhancing drugs and receiving oxygen-boosting blood transfusions. Even though he did so, investigators close to the case say he didn’t completely come clean. He allegedly lied about when he stopped doping, saying the last time he used drugs and transfusions was in the 2005 race. He has been allegedly been using for the last decade.

The USADA released results of their investigation against Lance Armstrong and the United States Postal Service, reporting that they ran “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”

The findings resulted with Armstrong losing his seven Tour de France titles, millions in endorsements, and having to leave Livestrong. Officials at the World Anti- Doping Agency (WADA) states that there needs to be an official confession under oath in order for Armstrong to have his lifetime ban from sports to be considered to be removed.
