Lance Armstrong Steps Down at Livestrong, Dumped by NIKE



Oh Boy we didnt see this one coming

Lance Armstrong stepped down as chairman of his Livestrong cancer-fighting charity and Nike severed ties with him as fallout from the doping scandal swirling around the famed cyclist escalated Wednesday.
Armstrong announced his move at the charity in an early-morning statement. Within minutes, Nike said that it would end its relationship with him ''due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade.''
Nike said it will continue to support Livestrong.
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a massive report last week detailing allegations of widespread doping by Armstrong and his teams when he won the Tour de France seven consecutive times from 1999 to 2005.
The document's purpose was to show why USADA has banned him from cycling for life and ordered 14 years of his career results erased - including those Tour titles. It contains sworn statements from 26 witnesses, including 11 former teammates.
He might lose his Olympic medals as well, from 2008 Beijing Games and the  2000 Sydney Games
