Lance Armstrong’s life continues to suck after his doping allegation scandal… the former cyclist was officially dropped by Nike today!
The company has decided to end its contract with Armstrong, claiming he “misled” them in regards to the allegations of doping.
The company released a statement saying, “Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him.”
The disgraced athlete also announced that he will be stepping down as the chairman of Livestrong, the cancer-fighting charity.
“To spare the foundation any negative effects as a result of controversy surrounding my cycling career, I will conclude my chairmanship,” said Armstrong.
For those of you who live under rocks, Armstong was banned from cycling for the rest of his life and was stripped of every single Tour de France wins after it was revealed that he was using performance enhancers.
Last week the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a report stating that Armstrong participated in “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
Well as they would say in elementary school when someone used massive amounts of steroids to win championships and gain millions of dollars in sponsorships…
