Famed Cyclist Lance Armstrong Faces New Doping Charges
World-renowned cyclist Lance Armstrong faces dope charges that could lead to him losing his seven Tour de Frances titles, the New York Times reports.
The 40-year-old athlete, who has been accused of doping for more than a decade, dismissed the charges as “a witch hunt.”
If convicted, the United States Anti-Doping Agency could impose a lifetime ban on any sports that are signatories of the quasi-governmental organization that oversees antidoping efforts primarily in Olympic sports. The U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles recently dropped any efforts to try and criminally charge him.
Armstrong is accused of using the blood-booster EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone, corticosteroids and other masking agents.
