Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, snubbed from the baseball Hall of Fame yesterday because of their links to steroids, might find their own path to redemption by watching Lance Armstrong on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong , who two former teammates say took banned performance-enhancing substances, is facing a legal process that eventually proved similar allegations against other professional athletes accused of doping.
Barry Bonds, Major League Baseball’s career home-run record holder convicted of obstructing a U.S. probe of steroid use in professional sports, faces sentencing by a judge who chose not to jail two athletes for similar offenses.
Lance Armstrong’s loss of support from Nike Inc. and other sponsors after the cyclist was tied to performance-enhancing drug use will cost him about $30 million in earning potential, according to a sports marketing agent.
Lance Armstrong didn’t win the Tour de France, the grueling race he once dominated, the one jokingly dubbed the Tour de Lance. In prior years he pedaled and pedaled and pedaled until he was the last man standing on the podium. Past tense.
