The World According to Lance

Great 47min documentary by ABC news regarding the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. ABC News will not allow me to embed the video on this site, so please go HERE and watch it. 

My thoughts on the scandal... because who doesn't want my thoughts... right?

  • It is not unusual for witch hunting in sports and people wanting to doubt that someone is unbelievably good. But it is extremely unusual for the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) to go after an American as hard as they are going after Armstrong. They would not go full tilt like this unless they were very sure; this is relevant.
  • Notice how Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, Dara Tores or Usain Bolt's names have been raised in doping issues. Most Olympic Gold medal winning athletes are tested at the games... noticed that   Rosie MacLennan's name wasn't mentioned here either. You have to have a whole lot of evidence behind you to make the allegations USADA is making or else find yourself liable (for Millions and Millions of $$ now that NIKE has dropped Armstrong as a spokesperson).
