Report Says Armstrong May Confess to Doping 1/5/13
January 5, 2013
AUSTIN - Lance Armstrong is reportedly considering a change in
course, dropping his years of denials and admitting that he used
The New York Times, citing anonymous sources, reported late Friday that
Armstrong has told associates he is thinking about the move.
However, Armstrong attorney Tim Herman says that the cyclist hasn't reached
out to USADA chief executive Travis Tygart and David Howman, director general of
the World Anti-Doping Agency.
USADA stripped Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles last year and
issued a report portraying the cyclist as the leader of a sophisticated doping
operation on his winning teams.
A USADA spokeswoman declined comment on Saturday while Howman was quoted by
the Sunday Star-Times in New Zealand, where he is vacationing, saying Armstrong
has not approached his group.
