Is Lance Armstrong the Most Scrutinized Athlete of All-Time?
Lance Armstrong redefined the sport of cycling by defying the odds. One thing that he can’t seem to escape are the rumors of steroid use.Once again, Armstrong finds himself under the microscope. He is being investigated by the US Anti-Doping Agency, which plans to press charges against him. Armstrong, of course, denies the claims, as he has done so many times before. This time is a bit different, though — if he is found guilty of blood-doping he will be stripped of all seven of his Tour de France titles.
It’s not the first time the Armstrong has been accused of doing some sort of performance-enhancing drug. Most of the speculations comes from the fact that he dominated the sport for so long. Many other cyclists have accused Armstrong and some of his own teammates have tested positive for steroids or other illegal drugs to help them get ahead. And this time around, members of Armstrong’s former team may even testify that they saw him doping.
