Lance Edward Armstrong (produced Lance Edward Gunderson; September 18, 1971) is an American former professional road racing cyclist. A cancer survivor, he’s the creator of the Livestrong Foundation, initially known as the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which gives support for cancer patients. At age 16, Armstrong started competing as a triathlete and was a national sprint-course triathlon winner in 1989 and 1990. In 1992, Armstrong started his career as a professional cyclist with the Motorola team.
In October 1996, he was identified as having testicular cancer that had spread to his brain, lungs and abdominal cavity. His cancer treatments contained brain and testicular operation and extensive chemotherapy. In February 1997, he was declared cancer-free as well as the exact same year he founded the Lance Armstrong Foundation. By January 1998, Armstrong had revived serious cycling training, having signed a brand new racing contract with US Postal. He was an associate of the US Postal/Discovery team between 1998 and 2005.
In the time he was facing a US national investigation into doping claims. In June 2012, USADA charged Armstrong with having used illegal performance-enhancing drugs. On August 24, 2012, USADA declared that Armstrong was issued a life ban from competition, related to all or any sports which follow the World Anti-Doping Agency code. The USADA report reasoned that Armstrong participated in “the most innovative, professionalized and successful doping software that sport has ever seen.” On October 22, 2012, UCI upheld USADA’s conclusion. In addition, it determined that his stripped triumphs wouldn’t be allocated to other riders. Armstrong chose to not appeal the judgement to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Despite having refused drug use throughout his career, in January 2013 he confessed to doping in a television interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey. In September 2013, he was requested by UCI’s new president, Brian Cookson, to testify fully about his doping. Armstrong refused to testify until and unless he got an entire amnesty, which Cookson said is most unlikely to take place.
