Oz library re-shelves Armstrong books from inspiring tale to ‘work of fiction’
London: An Australian library has re-shelved and re-categorized drug cheat Lance Armstrong related books to the work of fiction section from the inspirational tale segment following his doping confession on Oprah Winfrey’s chat show.
The Manly Library in Sydney, Australia caused a few grins after they moved three Armstrong titled book this weekend.
A sign at reception at the library read: ‘All non-fiction Lance Armstrong titles, including ‘Lance Armstrong: Images of a Champion,’ ‘The Lance Armstrong Performance Program’ and ‘Lance Armstrong: World`s Greatest Champion,’ will soon be moved to the fiction section’, the paper added.
It comes as Armstrong took to the Winfrey chat show in the United States to come clean about being at the centre of one of the most sophisticated doping programmes in the history of sport and appealed for forgiveness from the public.
In a sensational interview, broadcast late last week, Armstrong, the seven-time Tour de France champion, admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs during the most successful part of his career, but his confession came with a belief that he should be given a second chance to compete, it concluded.
