It has just been announced on British TV (BBC1 Breakfast show) that the great Lance Armstrong is to be investigated for taking performance enhancing
drugs during his racing career.
I find that totally appalling! The guy has managed to make a full recovery from testicular cancer, has retired from racing and all he now wishes to do
is to live a quiet life.
From my point of view, this guy is a legend. His struggle against younger, fitter and stronger cyclists, the arduous Tour de France circuits and his
battle with cancer - all at the same time, should be trumpted as a superb example to us all.
Now however, he has to continually deny taking drugs to satisfy the baying and hounding of the press who want his blood - quite literally.
From what I understand of the story, a well known newspaper has got hold of a blood sample allegedly from Armstrong which prooves he
took these drugs.
Just what the is going on? Why do people have to be so jealous of this guy. What is the point of dragging his name through the mud?
This makes me so peed off!
