USDA Says Testimony From 11 Former Teammates Helped Build Case Against Lance Armstrong
Since being stripped of his titles and being accused of using illegal performance enhancing substances, Lance Armstrong has publicly been pretty quiet. He recently challenged the U.S. anti-doping agency to provide what evidence they had. Perhaps Armstrong should be careful what he wishes for.
According to StarTribune.com, the anti-doping body revealed a group of 11 former Armstrong teammates — some loyal, some estranged — who each provided evidence of drug use on the U.S. Postal Service team. USADA Chief Executive Travis Tygart called it “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
It appears that some of Armstrong’s peers have stood up and spoken out against him, claiming they witnessed him doing the illegal activity. Of course, Armstrong says the report is full of comments from people who have an ax to grind with him or were cut deals to make up stories about him.
If he did it, he’ll never admit it and if he didn’t do it he’s still tarnished by this report so it’s probably best to let the dust settle for Lance Armstrong as it’s tough for him to currently disprove this.
