Former cyclist Lance Armstrong will not cooperate with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's investigation of performance enhancing drug use in the sport, an Armstrong attorney said Wednesday.
USADA had given Armstrong – who publicly admitted such drug use last month – until Wednesday to decide whether he would cooperate under oath with investigators as part of a possible path to altering his USADA-imposed lifetime competition ban.
"Lance will not participate in USADA's efforts to selectively conduct American prosecutions that only demonize selected individuals while failing to address the 95% of the sport over which USADA has no jurisdiction," Armstrong attorney Tim Herman said in a written statement Wednesday.
I left a comment. It may have been too true to post.
Seriously? Can you blame him for not coperating? He didn't kill anybody for gods sake. If this country would spend more time and money going after true criminals, we would all be better off. The man lied about doping before a race. Somebody has their priorities screwed up. Im pretty sure there are more important things going on in this country that needs taking care of. Who cares what he did 7 years ago.
The people that gave money to anything that he did because they believed his lies.
What are they after? He has already admitted it, been stripped of everything, and the USADA isn't a government entity. I should think that they would be satisfied.
A church cannot print in its Sunday morning bulletin that the pastor used his discretionary fund for his plane tickets to the Holy Land, China, and the Bahamas, but that church will print the ti-
tle of that pastor's sermon against stealing.
Yes, JIF, but was he discreet on his trip?
My discreet, pastoral bulletin was code for my two rejected on-topic posts.
He may be tired. Of. All this stuff
lance arm (made him) strong...
parent be careful what you name your kids
This defense did not work for Clinton, and it won't work for Johny Steriods either.
