Though the actual story has yet to air, it’s rumored that Lance Armstrong is finally going to ‘come clean’ on ‘dodging the dopers.’
If so, it came down to an interview with Oprah. He dodged hundreds of drug tests over the years but in the end it would come down to an interview with Oprah.
Lance Armstrong has done ‘so much good’ for ‘so many.’
Look at all the races he’s won. He was ‘thought to be’ the best on two wheels in the world. Ever.
It got me wondering. If YOU could raise millions of dollars to do something good, but had to mislead, would you do it?
How far would you go? How far could you go. And how long could you do it?
I think it’s fitting and ironic that Lance Armstrong was known for his endurance on his bicycle. If the interview goes as rumored, he certainly showed great endurance on this ‘story’ he’s been riding for the past years.
Here’s the story from The Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – A person with knowledge of the situation says Lance Armstrong has apologized to the staff at his Livestrong cancer foundation. He did so before heading to an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the discussion was private.
Armstrong addressed the staff Monday and said, “I’m sorry.” The person said the disgraced cyclist choked up and several employees cried during the session.
The person also said Armstrong apologized for letting the staff down and putting Livestrong at risk but he did not make a direct confession to the group about using banned drugs. He said he would try to restore the foundation’s reputation.
Armstrong urged the group to continue fighting for the charity’s mission of helping cancer patients and their families. After the meeting, Armstrong, his legal team and close advisers gathered at a downtown Austin hotel for the interview.
