Armstrong declines

 

Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong won’t do a tell-all interview under oath with the U.S. Anti- Doping Agency to reveal everything he knows about the use of performance-enhancing drugs in cycling. USADA officials had told Armstrong he must speak with them if he wanted to reduce his lifetime ban from sports. Under their offer, Wednesday was the deadline for him to agree to the interview. Armstrong attorney Tim Herman said the cyclist refused to participate in a process designed “only to demonize selected individuals.” Armstrong said previously he is willing to participate in an international effort to clean up a sport based mostly in Europe. – AP
