Oprah Winfrey Interview … Lance Armstrong Admits Doping and Says He Plans to Testify Against International Cycling Union Officials

 

After decades of denials, Lance Armstrong admits to doping during his interview with Oprah Winfrey. It had been widely speculated that Armstrong was finally going to come clean on his doping past. According to accounts, in an Oprah interview that is scheduled to air on Thursday, Lance Armstrong confessed that he used performance enhancing drugs during his cycling career. A sport that he has been presently banned for life and has been stripped of his record seven Tour de France titles. Reports also say that Armstrong is willing to testify against International Cycling Union officials who were aware of the wide spreading doping in the sport. The questions is to Armstrong, so why now? Will Armstrong’s admission and outing of officials get his ban shortened and allow him to compete in cycling and triathlon events in the future?

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that is scheduled for broadcast on her network on Thursday, Lance Armstrong confessed that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career, according to two people briefed on the interview, which was recorded Monday in Austin, Tex.

It is unclear, though, how forthcoming Armstrong was about his doping program, which the United States Anti-Doping Agency has said was part of the most sophisticated, organized and professional doping scheme in the history of sports. Armstrong, when reached by e-mail Monday, said he could not discuss the interview.

      Lance Armstrong ‘s cheating and lying makes
      America look bad to the rest of the world.

      Know this, IF Armstrong suffers any serious legal
      ramification from this confession – he will receive
      a Presidential Pardon.

      Why? Because Armstrong will become the Poster Child
      for dispelling the ‘myth of American exceptionalism’.
