I’m a big believer in the saying, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire”. Lance Armstrong and his reputation have been smoldering for quite some time now. Accusers and witnesses have popped up over and over again to accuse the 7 time Tour De France winner of doping. Usually, I’m the first join the fray and point the finger when there are so many pointing their’s but in this case, Armstong’s words are very pointed, “I have never doped, and, unlike many of my accusers, I have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one. That USADA ignores this fundamental distinction and charges me instead of the admitted dopers says far more about USADA, its lack of fairness and this vendetta than it does about my guilt or innocence. Any fair consideration of these allegations has and will continue to vindicate me.”
Armstrong has been the most tested man in sports and has never, ever failed a test. The USDA needs to come to the table with more than just the same ole’ same ole’.
