Lance Armstrong Finally Admits PED Use

This is so sad.  So many people used Lance and his "LIVESTRONG" charity as an inspiration, and now the truth is coming out, as he has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs.


Here is more from USA Today:

Cyclist Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs to gain an edge in cycling in a lengthy interview Monday, a person familiar with the interview told USA TODAY Sports.

The person requested anonymity because the interview details are supposed to remain confidential until its airing Thursday night.

Winfrey did not share details of the interview, but the iconic talk show host went on Twitter to say the interview lasted more than two and a half hours and Armstrong "came READY!"

Winfrey will appear on CBS This Morning on Tuesday to promote the Armstrong interview, which airs at 9 p.m. EDT Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Prior to the taping, Armstrong issued an emotional apology to the staff at Livestrong, the charity he founded to support cancer survivors.

Armstrong stepped down from the foundation's board in October after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a massive file of evidence against him that spelled out how and when he used performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions to boost his performance.


How does this change your opinion of Lance?
