Lance Armstrong, who lost his seven Tour de France titles after he was accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, is reportedly considering admitting to doping, a Jan. 4, 2013 New York Times report indicates.
According to the Times, Armstrong, 41, has “told associates” he may decide to come clean about the use of the drugs in order to salvage his career as an athlete.
Armstrong was been banned for life from cycling in October 2012, and is unable to compete in any athletic competitions sanctioned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the World Anti-Doping Agency, according to The Huffington Post.
A report by the USADA detailing claims that Armstrong and his teammates used performance-enhancing drugs, led to the athlete losing his Tour de France titles, gained from 1999 to 2005.
Shortly after the report surfaced, Armstrong, stepped down from the board of his Livestrong nonprofit cancer foundation.
Tim Herman, Armstrong’s attorney, told the Associated Press that he has no knowledge of any plans his client may have to admit to doping.
