COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – So many sports fans didn’t want it to be true. But now, the evidence is borderline undeniable.
After hundreds of negative drug tests and years of battling allegations from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Lance Armstrong threw in the towel. While still maintaining his innocence, he said he just couldn’t fight it anymore.
Now we know why.
The U.S.A.D.A. revealed its findings Wednesday, stating “The evidence shows beyond any doubt that Armstrong’s U.S.P.S. cycling team ran the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
That’s pretty heavy stuff.
The report is more than 1,000 pages long and includes testimony from 26 people, including 15 riders. On top of that, eleven of Armstrong’s teammates have come forward.
U.S.A.D.A. officials say Armstrong was given that same opportunity. We all know how that turned out.
The reports are now being sent to the International Cycling Union, the World Anti-Doping Agency and the World Triathlon Corp.
Talk about a fall from grace.
