Lance Armstrong

Reportedly Ready to Come Clean to Oprah

1/12/2013 5:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0112-lance-armstrong-oprah-tmzLance Armstrong is gearing up to admit that he was doping throughout his illustrious cycling career ... and he will make the admission to Oprah Winfrey this week ... so says a new report.

Armstrong will not go into great detail, says USA Today, but will make the admission during an interview that tapes Monday and airs on Thursday.

The seven-time Tour de France winner has adamantly denied any wrongdoing for years, often attacking anyone who accused him.

Armstrong was banned for life and stripped of all his Tour de France victories last year.

If this lying and cheating bastard is looking for sympathy forget it!!! He threatened and terrorized people who told the truth about him. He should be charged and given jail time! Hopefully we never have to see or hear from him again!!

I think everyone is missing one fantastic thing that could come from this:
Get his "receipe" for the doping and use it on people that need it- the sick, those with chronic illnesses, etc. The effects of his doping made him invincible, that could help others that are sick. If it were me, I'd put a patent on it and sell it to doctors and hospitals.....we could have a whole nation of tour de france winners that once couldn't even walk!

No details??? You cheat, you lie, all these years and now no details?? Lmao I had never heard of the tour due France until Lance. He brought a lot of people into cycling and his cancer works have been extraordinary. I know others won't agree but I don't care what he did to his body to win. If he didn't have the drive, the ambition, the physical prowess, and absolute dedication to his sport it wouldn't matter what he did, he would not have won. And they can't even give his wins to someone else because ALL the top winners were doing what had been deemed a NO NO to win. Lance made cycling the well known sport it is and the French have always hated him. Excuse me if you are French, SCREW the French. I'm off to spend the day digging thru junk stores.

I hear about people supporting his/the charity but folks, his/the charity exists because he doped! Doping and the charity go hand in hand!

Shame on you, Oprah. Why are you giving this liar air time? We already know the truth. It is not okay for Liar, Liar, Lance on Fire to lie to my face, and then try and up the truth only when he is cornered. Maybe he will squirt out a few tears too. Lance Armstrong is nothing but a selfish piece of used azzwipe. He hurt his family, his sport and the youth culture. Cheaters never prosper, did your momma forget to teach you that, Lance.

At that level they could all be doping....the science of making designer performing enhancing drugs is extremely advanced. These people are usually one step ahead of the doping commission.


Lance Armstrong like Marion Jones never failed a test!


It was people that knew they were doping who spilled the beans!
