OK .. this Lance Armstrong thingy keeps growing and more discussions are arising and more questions are being asked. My standpoint on this is clear. He won the Tour de France 7 times against opposition who were ‘also’ cheating, to me that cannot be taken away from my memory.
Yes, his personal name has been used to raise money for cancer, however please do note that this is ‘product branding’ and the most made statement in a beauty pageant is that they raise money for charity.
Lest not mix up the truth from the facts.
If Armstrong put his hands up and said that he had doped, there is more likelihood that everyone would have accepted this, however he chose to live his own lie and to that there are consequences, if not today but certainly somewhere along the line it will catch up.
Armstrong has been an amazing competitor in a sport that was riddled with doping, it surely would have been time to come clean.
