Despite the denial of prior allegations associated with doping, Lance Armstrong has now admitted to using athletic performance enhancers. Armstrong has won several awards which included seven Tour de France titles. Due to allegations and several testimonies proving Armstrong's drug use, the Tour de France titles were stripped and endorsers have pulled their name from association with Armstrong.
Armstrong is known for overcoming cancer and battling the odds to win title after title in the cycling world. Many question if he'll ever be able to redeem himself considering the longevity and depth of his continued lies and denial. Now the integrity of the Livestrong organization, that Armstrong founded, is tainted due to Armstrong's doping use. He has personally apologized to the Livestrong organization for the connected controversy they have endured. However, is sorry enough?
