Disgraced former Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, who was recently stripped of all his titles and awards as well as banned for life for being a dope cheat by the US Anti Doping Agency escaped a hotel raid by the police in France by the skin of his teeth, just because he was, at that time, being ‘protected in the country’, according to a French lawyer. The cycling legend has recently been handed the sanction by the US Anti Doping Agency after he refused to exercise his right for arbitration at a neutral and independent hearing.
Lance Edward Armstrong is a former American professional road racing cyclist who holds a record of winning Tour de France seven consecutive times. He is not only one of the most celebrated athletes in the world but also a survivor.
He was diagnosed with cancer at a very early stage of his career that affected his lungs, abdomen and brain. He was a fighter and an inspiration to millions of people around the world. He opened Lance Armstrong Foundation so as to educate people about early stage of cancer detection and ways to cure the disease.
Armstrong started his professional career in 1992 and went on to win various championships. He had been marked for greatness from an early age, with his first coach sticking a bet at Bet Victor that he would win the Tour de France some day before he way 30.
