Armstrong Coming Clean?

Lance Armstrong confession New York TimesAccording to the New York Times Lance Armstrong may be on the verge of publicly confessing all. Accused, along with his US Postal Service team, by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) of running ‘…the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping programme that sport has ever seen’, Armstrong could, according to the paper, be considering coming clean (so to speak) in order to be able to resume his triathlon ambitions. Coyly, however, the Texan’s layer, Tim Herman, told the NY Times that on the subject of mea culpa Armstrong would have to ‘…speak for himself on that.’ It has been claimed that Armstrong met with USADA Chief Executive Ty Tygart to discuss moving forward, something that Herman has so far denied.


The paper further suggested that Armstrong was seeking to meet with David Howman, Director General of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), but in a statement they said: ‘To date, WADA has had no official approach from Mr. Armstrong or his legal representatives, but – as with anyone involved in anti-doping violations – it would welcome any discussion that helps in the fight against doping in sport.’
