Does Lance Armstrong’s Doping Confession Change Your Opinion of Him?
The seven-time Tour de France winner admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Lance Armstrong has admitted to doping during an interview with Oprah Winfrey taped Monday, hours after apologizing to staff at the Livestrong Foundation, which he started but has since been forced to resign from, CBSNews.com reported.
After nearly 15 years of denials, threats and actions against anyone who told the truth about doping on the U.S. Postal cycling team, Armstrong confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs during a career that included winning seven Tour de France titles, which he has since been stripped of, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Patch wants to know: Does Lance Armstrong's doping confession change your opinion of him or his charity?
Livestrong Foundation issued a statement Wednesday morning in response to Armstrong’s interview with Winfrey, writing, “We expect Lance to be completely truthful and forthcoming in his interview and with all of us in the cancer community.”
Here's what people on Facebook has to say about Armstrong's confession:
Peter Hable Conveniently timed after his statute of limitations expired and still has little regard for the people he belittled for years. Incorrectly quttes the definition of cheating to convince himself it was okay. Like Soledad said, he is a narcicist.
Lynn Vander Meer Disappointing. But not surprising. Athletes are not what we have held them up to be.
Sherri Peterson Braam I never liked the guy anyway - shady
Toni Mueller He didn't care who he ruined along the way. He ruined people who told the truth. Sued them and won. He is despicable. Only confessing cuz he has finally been caught. NOT a good person!
Stella Phipps Not shocked. Friend of mine used to compete and had said for years that it is impossible that he wasn't doping. It was simply a matter of not getting caught.
