Disgraced Armstrong: 'My Fate Was Sealed'

Ad Feedback

Lance Armstrong has finally admitted that he cheated, using banned substances to help him become a cycling legend.

The seven-time winner of the prestigious Tour de France has already been stripped of his awards.

That came after former friends and training partners previously gave him up to anti-doping authorities -- a move that Armstrong said sealed his fate.

The disgraced cyclist admitted his guilt in an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey on her OWN network:

Oprah Winfrey: "Yes or no, did you ever take banned substances to enhance your cycling performance?"

Lance Armstrong: "Yes."

The question and answer continued in that form.

Winfrey: "Yes or no. Was one of those banned substances EPO?"

Armstrong: "Yes."

Winfrey: "Did you use any other banned substances, like testosterone, cortisone or human growth hormone?"

Armstrong: "Yes."

Oprah: "Yes or no. In all seven of your Tour de France victories, did you ever take banned substances or blood dope?"

Armstrong: "Yes."

Throughout the interview, Armstrong was light on the details and didn't name names. But more information may come out in the future since he is facing several lawsuits over his doping activities.

Just this week Armstrong was also stripped of his bronze medal from the 2000 Olympics.
