Armstrong refuses USADA interview
2013-02-21 14:21:05 | (0 Comments)
Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong says he will not agree to be interviewed under oath by the United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA).
The 41-year-old American admitted taking performance-enhancing drugs during seven of his Tour de France wins in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
By speaking to USADA, he would have been eligible to have a lifetime ban overturned.
Armstrong was initially given until February 6 to meet USADA officials but was allowed a further two weeks to decide whether to be interviewed.
An agreement appeared close when USADA said Armstrong wanted to "assist in the effort to clean up the sport of cycling" when they agreed to the extension.
However a statement released by Armstrong’s attorney Tim Herman, said he is willing to help with the investigation but will not be interviewed by USADA.
USADA chief executive Travis Tygart says the agency will continue its investigation to clean up cycling without Armstrong.
