Heroes that went back to zero
The news that came out late last Thursday night was nothing short of shocking. Cyclist Lance Armstrong, a seven-time winner of the Tour de France, decided to stop fighting charges by the United States Anti-Doping Agency and was stripped of his titles and banned from competition for life. While whispers from cyclists crying foul had grown into full out screams since Armstrong's last yellow jersey in 2005, Armstrong still had the support of many because he had so vehemently denied the doping allegations for years. He finally relented however, saying the constant speculation was putting undue strain on his family. Now that Armstrong's titles have been stripped, the only thing left to be strained is his once impeccable legacy - something these sports figures can relate to.
