Anti-Doping Agency Approves Lance Armstrong Ban
The decision to strip Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles and ban him from competitive sports for life will stand.
The World Anti-Doping Agency today said the sanctions were justified. The agency had 21 days to appeal the sanctions.
Last week, the International Cycling Union also accepted the punishment from U.S. anti-doping officials, removing Armstrong’s Tour titles and asking him to return millions of dollars in prize money.
