IOC begins investigation against Lance Armstrong
Zeenews Sports Bureau
New Delhi: The International Olympic Committee has begun investigations regarding the claims made in the US Anti-Doping Agency report that alleged Lance Armstrong being involved in ``the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.``
If IOC is convinced by the findings of the reports implicating Armstrong and his teammates of doping, the 41-year-old cyclist could be stripped of his Olympic bronze medal that he won in 2000 Olympic Games.
"The IOC will now immediately start the process concerning the involvement of Lance Armstrong, other riders and particularly their entourages with respect to the Olympic Games and their future involvement with the Games," an IOC official was quoted as saying by a leading daily.
Armstrong was earlier stripped of his seven Tour de France titles following damning revelations about the American being involved in doping.
