Behind the Headlines: Should Armstrong's Charity Suffer For His Sins?

Craig and Marc Kielburger

The trouble with Lance Armstrong's fall from grace is that he wasn't just a sports hero; he was a self-styled symbol of hope. Which is why we're all left wondering: does his doping confession negate his charitable work? Candidly, we're conflicted. Some of the onus for Armstrong's fall lies on our cultural tendency to elevate celebrities and sports idols to too-good-to-be-true status, then crucify them in the court of public opinion at their every transgression.

Doping in Sports Isn't Cheating, It's a Natural Progression

It's an old cliché that sports is a metaphor for the human condition. But there's a lot of truth to it. As technology helped humanity obliterate these milestones and move beyond what until 100 years ago had been a long, bleak history, similar advances in nutrition, training, and using technology to improve technique have enabled sports records to fall with astonishing regularity. Let there be sports leagues that thrive on "pure sport," whatever that is, and let there be sports leagues where athletes are left to balance their own health and career longevity with technology, pharmacology, and the quest for a competitive advantage.

Lance Armstrong Steps Down as Livestrong Chairman

A week after the United States Anti-Doping Agency showed the world its evidence in the doping case against Armstrong, claiming he was at the centre of an organized doping program on his Tour de France winning teams, Armstrong stepped down on Wednesday as chairman of Livestrong, his cancer foundation. Nike, the company that had his back for over ten year's worth of doping allegations, was quick behind. They decided to unceremoniously terminate his contract. Neither of these decisions will keep me up at night, in fact they should have been done weeks ago. However! what is sorely lacking from all of Wednesday's announcements are two words that should leave Armstrong's lips and echo around the cycling stratosphere.

If You Can't Prove Armstrong Doped, How Can You Convict Him?

Peter Worthington | Posted 10.28.2012 | Canada
Peter Worthington

It's fair enough to suspect Lance Armstrong of doping, and since 1999 he'd been put through the hoops time and time again. Yet, nothing. Other cyclists tested positive -- not Armstrong. I haven't a clue if Armstrong was, or was not, using banned substances. All I know is that it has never been proven. If you can't prove something, you can't convict him.

Post-Armstrong, The Dream Can Still Be Lean, Mean -- And Clean

Today Lance Armstrong gave up his legal fight against allegations of doping. Consequently his results from 1998 onwards, including seven consecutive overall victories in the Tour de France, will be abolished. For post-Lance cycling fans, the very idol that drew them to two wheels has been smashed. But there is hope in the new generation, in the Ryders and Bradleys, who are clean cyclers.
