A year after the damning report by the USADA and being stripped of his Tour de France titles, Armstrong will finally speak publicly about his years of performance-enhancing drug use.
Lance Armstrong will be coming clean about the allegations that he used performance-enhancing drugs in an interview with Oprah Winfrey this coming week. The Huffington Post reports that the interview, which is scheduled to be recorded Monday and will air Thursday night, will be done at Armstrong’s home in Austin, TX.
Armstrong was stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles and banned from the sport for life after a 2012 report by the US Anti-Doping Agency detailed years of Armstrong’s involvement in a “sophisticated and brazen doping program,” that included the use of steroids, illegal blood transfusions and blood boosters.
This interview will be the first time Armstrong has spoken publicly about the accusations, the USADA report, or the loss of his titles other than to deny vehemently that there was any wrongdoing.
