For years, Lance Armstrong denied that he has ever doped while competing (and won) seven Tour de France titles. But since he has stopped fighting WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) and was stripped of his titles, there were rumors that he was finally ready to confess but the medium of confession had been unclear until now. Tests by the USADA showed no signs that the athlete used PED (performance-enhancing drugs) but many say that the test conducted by the USADA can be beat.
Oprah Winfrey (Queen of Talk) has snagged a 90-minute no-holds-barred interview with Lance Armstrong where it has been promised that the athlete will confess the real truth behind the allegations.
Note that Lance had denied use of PEDs all throughout “under oath”. His admittance of use may or may not result in charges placed against him.
So, the question is: “Why now?”
Could it be because he wants to participate in Triathlons but is prohibited by the WADA? Or is it to keep the remaining sponsors of a foundation he founded (Live Strong Foundation) which is believed to be valued at $100 million dollars?
To find out, you may have to tune in.
