Lance Armstrong gets stripped of his Olympic medal
Mid-way through January and Lance Armstrong is already having one of the worst years of his life.
The disgraced cycler’s trophy case is getting a little clearer after the International Olympic Committee’s decision to strip Armstrong of his bronze medal from the 2000 Olympic games.
The IOC executive board discussed revoking the medal in December, but delayed the decision until cycling body UCI formally notified Armstrong that he had been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and all results since 1998.
Armstrong recently opened up to Oprah about the allegations of doping. The interview between Armstrong and Oprah airs tonight on OWN.
