Lance Armstrong is no stranger to controversy, but the latest evidence released by the United States Anti-Doping Agency makes his claims of innocence even harder to believe.
According to the report, Armstrong was at the center of a highly sophisticated doping ring when he participated in the Tour de France. A week after the report went public, Armstrong issued a statement saying he was stepping down from his role as chairman of the Livestrong Foundation "to spare the foundation any negative effects as a result of controversy surrounding [his] cycling career."
Shortly after he resigned, Nike also decided to drop him from their sponsorship. This was a surprising move considering the sporting giant has stuck with Armstrong through the past 10 years of controversy.
Although Lance Armstrong has lived an incredible life and helped millions of people through his Livestrong Foundation, the latest allegations have cost him many supporters.
