Lance Armstrong admits doping

Lance Armstrong admits doping | Scholorship PE | Scoop.it

Lance Armstrong has admitted for the first time that he used steroids, EPO and PED during his cycling career. He claimed in a television interview with Oprah Winfrey that he would not have been able to win seven Tour de France titles without cheating, such was the prevalence of performance-enhancing drugs in the sport at the time.

The Guardian suggests that Oprah was the real dope for allowing Armstrong to evade answers to some of her questions, but I seriously doubt that any other broadcaster could have elicited a confession from the man. Forget the nitpicking over details, Armstrong has spilled the beans.

Alex Martin's curator insight, January 9, 2014 10:22 AM

I think this article gives a great example of a pro athlete who's career is now tarnished due to his use of steroids throughout his cycling career. Dating back to 1999, Lance has been given drug test after drug test. Even after failing multiple times, he began using his illness and rehabilitation as an excuse. Up until early 2013, Armstrong had denied all the alligations to steroids. In an interview with Oprah, he admitted to all the alligations, which included cheating on well over half of the drug tests.

Ethan Jackson's curator insight, June 10, 2013 5:00 AM

The money aspect of this article is very valid, to increase the budget for anti-doping and other drug detection would be money coming out of much more important accounts. Really what the writer is asking is is it worth it? Are drugs in sport that significant that other things suffer because of it? Or should we turn a blind eye and forget about the drugs, and rather focus on the extroadinary performances if the athletes.
