Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong has fought years of accusations of doping, but he has finally given up the fight.
According to Reuters, on Friday the United States Anti-Doping Agency handed down a lifetime ban on Armstrong and stripped him of all his wins. Although the USADA has ruled, should the International Cycling Union challenge the ruling it is up to a Court of Arbitration for Sports in Lausanne, Switzerland, to make the final decision.
Fellow competitors have leveled accusations of doping at Armstrong over the years, however he has never tested positive. Still, he said he was tired of fighting the accusations and was moving on, leaving it in the hands of the USADA. His decision to give up the fight prompted Friday's decision.
Do you think the International Cycling Union should challenge the USADA’s ban? Do you believe the seven-time Tour de France champion should lose his titles and be banned from future competiton for life?
