Lance Armstrong faces a Wednesday deadline in which to decide whether to meet with U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials or not… If he does’t answer the agency, they say, he will never be consider reentry into the sport of cycling.
The “Talk” would place the discraced cyclist under oath to blab about what he knows re performance-enhancing drug use in the sport.
The agency has said cooperation in its cleanup effort is the only path open to Armstrong if his lifetime ban from sports is to be reduced but anything he revealed can and will be used against him, as usual. So where’s the favor?
His attorney, Tim Herman, previously suggested his client wouldn’t meet with USADA before the agency’s original Feb. 6 deadline. The sides then agreed to give Armstrong another two weeks to work out an interview with investigators.
Armstrong previously denied using performance-enhancing drugs, but in last month’s television interview with Oprah Winfrey he finally admitted doping to win the Tour de France seven times. UsaToday.
