A Lance Armstrong admission could be on the way. According to unnamed sources who are reportedly friends of the disgraced athlete, the cyclist is considering coming clean about the use of performance enhancing drugs that ultimately ended his illustrious career and stripped him of his seven Tour de France titles.
If Lance Armstrong's admission is right around the corner, his attorney either doesn't know about it or is being very discreet. "Tim Herman denied that Armstrong has reached out to USADA chief executive Travis Tygart and David Howman, director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency," according to a Jan. 4, 2013 report by The Huffington Post.
The U.S. Anti-Drug Agency (USADA) banned the disgraced cyclist from the sport of cycling for life after he decided to stop fighting doping charges that had been brought against him. In addition, that ban extends to sports besides cycling. Banned athletes cannot enter any races that are sanctioned by USA Track & Field. They also cannot compete in any sports that are governed by federations that are signatories to the World Anti-Doping Code.
When Sheryl Crow was interviewed on Lance Armstrong's alleged connection to illegal doping, neither Crow's representative nor federal agents released any information about what the singer may have told them. They allegedly asked her what she knew about the cyclist's use of illegal substances. The answers to those questions have never been made public. Given her reputation for absolute discretion in matters of her former lover, it is extremely unlikely that Crow is one of the unnamed sources dishing about a possible Lance Armstrong admission.
