It’s a mystery to me how Travis Tygart (head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) can destroy the reputation of a fine athlete (Lance Armstrong) who single-handedly has raised almost half a billion dollars for cancer research and won seven consecutive times in the biggest bike race in the world. Tygart has done this without one shred of physical evidence but rather on the testimony of a couple of bitter losers. Lance was subjected to many repeated tests for drugs and none showed any violation of rules regarding doping. With no physical evidence, it is unbelievable that USDA has “stripped” Lance of seven earned medals. This would be similar to convicting someone of a major crime based solely on hearsay. Lance has proven himself to be a giant in the world of sport. Tygart, on the other hand, is a joke.
