Doping Agency Sued By Armstrong




After being charged in June in a doping case, Lance Armstrong has now sued the doping company. He wants the company to drop the charges and have the whole case fuse out. Armstrong had already been denying all accusations and says that the whole situation has been framed by his competition to defame him and strip him of his many titles. Armstrong has won Tour de France seven times.

He has been repeatedly saying that he never consumed any drugs throughout his career and he certainly hadn’t done it now. In the case filed by him, Armstrong says that the USADA have no grounds to make such an accusation and the case will be now handled by “a big fish”.

The lawsuit says

“Defendants have charged Mr. Armstrong with unspecified doping violations and seek to try him through USADA’s self-created, self-regulated and self-operated process that it has rigged to ensure that it cannot lose”.

Back in June the agency said that along with Armstrong, there were five other teammates who would be put under proceedings. While some of the other teammates have even come close to admitting that they had taken performance-enhancing drugs. One of them even claimed that he had seen Armstrong take them before a tournament. That was rubbished by the champion and he said that it was all a ploy to get his name down to ashes.

The lawsuit also states that the USADA was made in order to protect athletes and their rights however they have been charging Armstrong without any merit.

“Like previous lawsuits aimed at concealing the truth, this lawsuit is without merit and we are confident the courts will continue to uphold the established rules which provide full constitutional due process and are designed to protect the rights of clean athletes and the integrity of sport.”

Armstrong goes on to say that in the span of his entire career, he has taken over 500 drug tests and has never failed a single one. That, he asserts, should be proof enough that he is innocent.

Though the investigations were ordered in June, charges have been hovering Armstrong for over a year now. At the moment, Armstrong is suspended from World Triathlon Corporation competitions.
