Lance Armstrong's Confession to Oprah - Watch Now!

Lance Armstrong's Confession to Oprah - Watch Now!

Lance Armstrong admits to using banned substances in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on her show Oprah’s Next Chapter.

The 41-year-old athlete admitted “yes” to using banned substances to enhance his cycling performances, using EPO, using blood transfusions and blood-doping to enhance his performance, and using other substances such as testosterone, cortisone, and human growth hormones.

Lance also admitted that during all seven of his Tour de France victories, he used banned substances or blood doped, and he shared that he could not have won the tournaments without them.

“I don’t know that I have a great answer,” Lance said when asked why he started using the substances. “I will start my answer by saying this is too late. It’s too late for probably most people. And that’s my fault. I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times. It wasn’t as if I said no and I moved off it.”

I, for one, discerned he was lying long time ago. Also, his notorious cocky demeanor was irksome.

# 2

It’s a shame. Ppl really wanted to root for this guy. He survived cancer. Instead, he turned out to be a lying, cheating bully who sued people and ruined their lives when he knew they were honest about him.

# 3

More than using the drugs, the fact that he lied over and over and over again is so frustrating. Definitely makes me lose all respect for him.

# 4

Many young aspiring athletes looked up to him — lying for so lying is very shameful. Apparently, he did many, many drugs. When I watched his earlier interviews, I thought he was lying too.

# 5

He bashed his fellow teammates who went public. In some cases, he defamed them, ruined their lives. Now, he wants someone to listen too his cries after so much denial? Hmmm…. very sad situation indeed.

# 6

wow, I’m speechless. I would not be surprised if he left some information out.

# 7

That’s crazy that he finally came clean. Did anyone see the story on Lance hitting on Oprah on Milk the Bull?

# 8

wow – it’s eerie watching this. what a crazy, crazy liar. people will do anything for fame and fortune and glory. what a crazy crazy thing.

# 9

He was so adamant about his innocence. He even went as far as saying he was being framed and that his teammates were nefarious characters. I believe that was all to keep his checks coming. He also strikes me as a narcissist.

Too little, too late! Do you guys remember the fiery open letter he fired up a few months ago when he was banned for cycling for life?! It was damn convincing and he was pretty adamant – even attack the head of the anti-doping association. He’s pathetic. Someone must be stupid enough to have the tiniest sympathy for this loser!

such a disgrace to the humankind you are lance .you should be stoned to death !

@Brian:

And he even found a famewhoring idiot to let him address his sick attitude on TV.

wow people are beyond harsh here, “he should be stoned to death” he is not a killer for goodness sake. we all make mistakes. we are human. no one is perfect. remember that.

ewv, no he should be burned at stake .lololol

wow…this is so low and shameful…no one should judge anyone we all need to learn lessons and grow, but he is really low to have kept on for so long! What the heck is going on! Tiger Woods is no longer biggest douchbag! Lance is a winner..ding ding ding..!!!!

@ewv
They/he are just trolling.
This is sad though. He went though so much to cover up his Rep.
In some parts of the interview he seemed like he was still in denial. Thats the small part

Son of a.. What a naive I am, who believe in fairy tales. Lance, congratulations, that’s a great fall of you.

Arrogant Narcissist Liar Jerk .

Carma IS a ***** .

I really looked up to him. A cancer survivor and winning the tour the france. Setting up a live strong foundation. But now. I dispice him. I think hes a mean sleese ……….

He comes clean when he’s sued for millions.

“carma” and “dispice”- CAN PEOPLE IN HERE LEARN TO SPELL PLEASE? GEEZ…

I hope he rots.

I hope he has to pay millions to every single person whom he bullied and sued and ruined.

Scumbag

So the French called it in 2005 and they were right. 8 years ago. The Americans were then eager to wallow in French bashing accusing them of being jealous, as if they hadn’t told on cyclists from other countries including their own for years, like the Festina scandal in 1998.
Anyway, the whole Tour is a joke, professional cyclism is a big lie, everybody knows it. Doping is embedded in cyclism ever since the beginning of the 20th century. There’s nothing you can do about it.

everybody he sued needs to sue him right back. He deserves to lose all his money.

Everyone in this sport is taking stuff. So they are all guilty. Not juste Lance!

He is a disgrace to cycling. He and many others had everyone fooled. How sad that everyone on the podium, even in second and third place, had done banned substances. Why does everyone in cycling feel the pressure to cheat? Maybe therein lies the problem. Maybe this sport is just too damn exhausting. For all I know, I refuse to watch anymore cycling competitions on TV.

This makes Miguel Indurain the best of the bests.

All this mea culpa is NOT sincere to me, it’s only to repair is his image which I believe is not reparable. NO WAY can anybody look at him now without thinking about any of this, without seeing him as a cheat and lier and a bully. He has lost respect, credibility and has to live with that the rest of his life. I feel sorry not only for the ones he threatened and bullied, but for his children, imagine going to school and everybody knowing your father lived a lie, no way is it not impacting them, it’s like a black shadow that will follow them around too.

He wasn’t the only team doping so unfortunately the sport of cycling has a black eye now. But to me even more important the good work he did for testicular cancer survivors, patients and families is now tarnished. Who cares about cycling in the end? What is important in life are the people you help and now his legacy for those cancer patients with testicular cancer has come crashing down. Although I am saddened and feel hurt by his confession (even tho like many I suspected he did dope), I will always be grateful for the hope he gave my son when he got cancer. His books which had a strong theme of fighting the disease inspired my son and so many like him. For that Lance is how I’m going to choose to hold you in my heart–as the man who survived cancer and gave hope to thousands that they could do the same.

His worst offense was milking off the Cancer Live Strong Campaign. Imagine lying to cancer victims all over the world. And making money money it.
He should not only be forced to pay back his million, but he should retire for life and donate all his money to charities.
He’s a complete self serving MoFo with the attitude of entitlement to the umpth degree.
He will never be forgiven.
As for Sheryl Crow, shame on her for living the lie along with him. What is HER problem????

Dave Franco @ 01/18/2013 at 2:56 pm

Agree. Sports ain’t the same. Everyone is using some type of drug. That’s why I only watch Hockey.

Dave Franco @ 01/18/2013 at 2:57 pm

His eyes says it all. He does not care. Such a narcissistic prick.

Psychopath much?

my god!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! u’re all so cruel and judgmental… it’s really sad. have some empathy :(

he’s only a human!!!!!!!!!!!!! errare humanum est! personally, i feel very sorry for him, he’s lost everything. i hope people will leave him alone soon :(

@flo:
yeah right! like he didn’t sued and bullied his team mates, journalists and sport officials who didn’t believe him… poor little thing! people are so mean with him not to recognize that his confession is truely genuine and sincere after all these lies…

Oprah: “Are you getting a reality show on OWN?”
Lance: “Yes”

What a horrible human being. he has no soul

geeza louisa – Lance got cancer from doping. You still think he’s a hero?

titiparisien @ 01/18/2013 at 9:07 pm

The problem is that he didn t only cheat

marco pantani , alberto contador were also caught

but armstrong bullied , sued fired and ruined tons of people who wanted to say the truth

that s why he s so hated

and no , not every one is doped

it s a cheater excuse

Betty Whitte @ 01/18/2013 at 11:28 pm

Everyone cheated. Get over it. All the Baseball players did steroids and their teams made a lot of money. They should worry about keeping their wives happy and buying Bedroom Toys from AthenaToysdotcom

This is sad. The person so many fans looked up to, the person so many athletes looked up to. It’s sad.

@vool:

Lol!!!!!! best comment :P

hookuprichcom @ 01/19/2013 at 11:10 am

many women want to meet a rich men ,you can date your mr. right via “my name”

He keeps talking about how he survived cancer – cancer that I am pretty sure his doping caused directly if not indirectly. Did he got back to it after beating off the cancer – that is a selfish and stupid man with no regards for his family.

@Betty Whitte: Oh Betty he did not just cheat he was the kingpin of a drug syndicate, he became a drug dealer if I need to make that simpler, as he no doubt made money on that as well

@Etipo: Lance tried to destroy the lives of others who WERE TELLING THE TRUTH

so forgive us if the rest of the world is not willing to cut him much slack right now

I still think he hasn’t told the whole truth yet

@From Paris with Love: There is something you can do about it, make it legal to use perform enhancing drugs or you have the clean circuit and the dirty circuit, at least it is all above board

that is it all the players of all sports declare if they are clean or dirty and they keep separate records

a hockey player who scores 50 goals clean trumps a dirty hockey player that scores 50 goals in a season
