Lance Armstrong Responds to Doping Claims

Friday, May 21, 2010

This week, cyclist Floyd Landis accused many of his teammates, including Lance Armstrong, of using performance enhancing drugs. Yesterday, Armstrong responded to these allegations and addressed Landis' claims directly, saying, "I would remind everyone that this is a man that has been under oath several times with a very different version." Armstrong added that he has nothing to hide and nothing to run from.

Tom Jolly, sports editor for The New York Times fills us in on the veracity of the allegations and whether this will affect Armstrong's reputation. He tells us that although Landis doesn't have hard evidence that his teammates used these drugs, anti-doping authorities are taking the claims seriously as they try to find the providers of these drugs.
