Lance Armstrong Ends Fight Against Doping Charges, Losing 7 Tour de France Titles, Olympic medal, Will Be Barred For Life

Lance Armstrong Ends Fight Against Doping Charges, Losing 7 Tour de France Titles, Olympic medal, Will Be Barred For Life | Sports Ethics: Osborne, T | Scoop.it

Via The New York Times:

 

After more than a decade of outrunning accusations that he had doped during his celebrated cycling career, Lance Armstrong, one of the best-known and accomplished athletes in recent history, surrendered on Thursday, etching a dark mark on his legacy by ending his fight against charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

 

Armstrong, who won the Tour de France an unprecedented seven straight times, said Thursday that he would not continue to fight the charges levied against him by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which contended that he doped and was one of the ringleaders of systematic doping on his Tour-winning teams.

 

His decision means he will almost certainly be stripped of his seven Tour titles, the bronze medal he won at the 2000 Olympics and all other titles, awards and money he won from August 1998 on.

It also means he will be barred for life from competing, coaching or having any official role with any Olympic sport or other sport that follows the World Anti-Doping Code...

Lance Armstrong could be the most influential sports figure, for the wrong reasons. He did so much for cancer research and was so succesful in cycling, and now that is all gone. What a shame

Lisa Kirk's curator insight, May 15, 2015 12:00 AM

Lance Armstrong was a role model for his accomplishments as an athlete.  As a cancer survivor and true legend to many, lost so much respect when he lied to the world about using PED (performance-enhancing drugs).  Just reading this article makes me realize how much an athlete would do in order to win illegally and immorally.  I am thankful that he has no part in coaching or any other roles in sports. 

Drug Free!!!!!

Sources: Butch Davis is FIU's top candidate after Cristobal firing | Sports Ethics: Osborne, T | Scoop.it

Florida International entered this season as the Sun Belt favorite, with an outside chance to go undefeated and crash the BCS.

 

Instead, FIU's season ended in a 3-9 disappointment, as injuries mounted at key positions and the team failed to cull any momentum.

 

Still, the news Wednesday morning that FIU had fired head coach Mario Cristobal stunned the college coaching community. Cristobal entered the season as one of the hottest candidates in the sport, having emerged as a strong candidate at both Pittsburgh and Rutgers last season before ultimately deciding to stay at FIU. He'd led FIU to consecutive bowl games at the time and felt this season's team could be his strongest to date.

 

Multiple sources with knowledge of FIU athletic director Pete Garcia's thinking said Wednesday that they expect Garcia to attempt to hire former Miami and North Carolina coach Butch Davis. Garcia's career began with Davis at the University of Miami and Garcia also worked with Davis with the Cleveland Browns...

I hope more athletes will be encouraged to take a stand against unethical behavior be it from a staff member or teammate.

Wendy R's curator insight, April 18, 2014 8:42 PM

"Laughable?" a bit derogatory isn't it?  How about something along the lines of, "We are unclear as to where these allegations came from, we don't coach in the manner he described, but we are eager to get to the bottom of this as fast and as civilized as possible." 

Josh Laker's curator insight, May 11, 2014 12:14 PM

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse | Sports Ethics: Osborne, T | Scoop.it

Via CBS News:

 

BELLEFONTE, PA. -- Jerry Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison — effectively a life sentence — in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno's downfall.

 

Judge John Cleland sentenced him to 30 year minimum to 60 years maximum in prison. Under Pennsylvania law, Sandusky cannot be released on parole before the minimum term is up.

 

A defiant Sandusky gave a long, rambling statement in which he denied the allegations and talked about his life in prison and the pain of being away from his family.

 

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Witnesses said Sandusky used the charitable organization he founded for troubled children as his personal hunting ground to find and groom boys to become his victims.

 

His arrest 11 months ago, and the details that came out during his trial over the summer, transformed Sandusky's public image from a college coach who had been widely admired for his work with The Second Mile charity into that of a reviled pervert who preyed on the very youngsters who sought his help.

 

Eight of the boys he was found guilty of molesting testified at his trial, describing a range of abuse that included fondling, oral sex and anal intercourse. One of the prosecution's star witnesses, former graduate assistant Mike McQueary, testified that he saw Sandusky raping a boy in a locker room shower.

 

At today's sentencing hearing a victim impact statement from Victim #1 was read: "I have tried to think of the words that would describe how Jerry Sandusky has impacted my life. It all began with Jerry Sandusky building my trust over a long period of time. Then came the ultimate betrayal. My psychologist describes it as PTSD - I describe it as emotional agony. To the end Jerry Sandusky wanted to manipulate and abuse each of the victims. No remorse, only evil..."

This has to be one of the most worst cases in history. You were looked upon as a role model but you took innocence from children.

In the previous article i scooped i said that 'it can happen to anybody any age" this article proves it this coach was abusing 15 year old teens and this shows that no matter what the age you can get abused.
