Armstrong Said to Consider Admitting to Drug Use

January 5, 2013, Saturday // 04:53

Cyclist Lance Armstrong considers publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career, according to a report.

Armstrong may do this because he wants to persuade antidoping officials to restore his eligibility so he can resume his athletic career, the New York Times has explained.

The paper has reminded that Armstrong has been under pressure from various fronts to confess.

Wealthy supporters of Livestrong, the charity he founded after surviving testicular cancer, have been trying to persuade him to come forward so he could clear his conscience and save the organization from further damage, a source has told the New York Times.

When asked if Armstrong might admit to doping, Tim Herman, Armstrong's longtime lawyer, said, "Lance has to speak for himself on that."
