Lance Armstrong Update: Arrogant Even After Conceding Doping Charges, Asserts Former White House & WADA Spokesman Robert Weiner; Victory for Clean Sport but "Dark Message" Is Science Must Catch Up to Masking Agents Allowing Cheating
Date:8/24/2012

WASHINGTON, Aug. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Lance Armstrong's arrogance even now after conceding on doping charges by USADA  – his belief he knows more than the enforcement  system and can beat it  – is what finally brought him down," asserted Robert Weiner, the former White House Drug Policy spokesman and former WADA Olympics spokesman.  Weiner, who was the spokesman for the Office of National Drug Policy and worked to help create WADA and USADA, said, "Armstrong conceded only because he would be beaten by over ten witnesses' testimony in arbitration who saw him dope and who had spoken with investigators.  His statement that 'Everyone knows who won' is outrageous and wrong.  Everyone now knows who cheated. This is a sad but huge victory for clean sport, and for WADA and USADA's ongoing mission to end drug cheating and assure youth that they will have an even playing field without drugs determining the champion."

"The real victory in Armstrong's concession is children who can believe that even the most famous athletes can get caught if they cheat," Weiner stated.

"However, a dark message from Armstrong's final concession," Weiner said, "is that top athletes like him continue to use masking agents to beat the science of drug testing. It's only because over ten witnesses saw Armstrong dope and came forward that he was overwhelmed and had to give up his fight.  For years, he's defied the system because he successfully masked his drug use with other drugs that blocked positive tests. If you're rich enough, you can do that. Armstrong only conceded after witnesses spoke out, despite hundreds of tests that erroneously showed him clean and let him keep racing, while he smugly was asserting all the while that he 'didn't dope.'"

"I remember Frank Shorter, USADA's Chairman and an American Olympic marathon gold medalist, telling me during the Sydney Olympics, while were waiting to start a drug
