Yesterday we reported that Lance Armstrong may chose to be completely honest about using Performance Enhancing Drugs during his professional cycling career. According to a report by the BBC today, he did indeed admit it during the recording of the interview which is set to air on Thursday. Bradley Wiggins recently said that Lance will never admit to any wrongdoing, but it would seem that he finally has chosen to.
Lance Armstrong is now 41 years old and has always maintained his public innocence, but perhaps there was too much pressure on him to be honest, plus with all the evidence coming to light in relation to the case, there were more than enough reasons for Lance to admit what he had been doing to win those titles.
After the investigation into his drug use found evidence showing that he did indeed use them, Lance was stripped of seven Tour de France titles. He lost all of his sponsorships and was forced to leave the Livestrong programme.
A chart on the BBC report also shows that most wins throughout the noughties were from doping. It’s a big shame really and shows that sports is going down hill. At least we have a genuine winner from 2012, who went on to perform very well at the Olympics too. Bradley Wiggins.
