The embattled Lance Armstrong is scheduled to do an interview with Oprah Winfrey next week. A release that was posted on Oprah's website on Jan. 7 suggests that Armstrong will address issues relating to the controversial doping scandal he's been dealing with. According to the NY Times, he has informed associates that he is strongly considering coming clean about his use of PEDs during his cycling career.
The shamed ex-cyclist is now facing even more problems due to an interview with Travis Tygart (head of USADA) that was posted online, which accused him of using performance-enhancing drugs since as early as 1999.
The USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) stripped all seven of Armstrong's Tour de France titles back in October, and also banned him from participating in any professional competition. In a lengthy report released by the USADA they said it was,
"The most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
Despite pressure to confess to using PEDs, Armstrong continues to deny he cheated, even though overwhelming evidence was discovered that contradicts his claims. I guess we'll have to wait and see if the disgraced former cyclist will really admit to the doping charges during his interview with Oprah. Armstrong on Oprah is set to air Jan. 17.
