Djokovic attacks: 'Armstrong is a disgrace'


Reactions leading personalities in the sports world to the first part of the televised interview in which Lance Armstrong admitted on Thursday night to doping throughout his career :

International Olympic Committee (IOC): "There is no place for doping in sport and the IOC unreservedly condemns the actions of Lance Armstrong and all those seeking to enjoy an unfair advantage over rivals through the substance. No doubt that today is a sad day for the sport, but if these revelations serve to put an end to these practices, we will have achieved something positive. The IOC strongly hopes that all parties involved draw relevant lessons case and continue to take all necessary measures to continue to ensure fair conditions of competition for all athletes. "

John Fahey (President of the World Anti-Doping Agency ): "For me, there is nothing new. Everything he has done what had already revealed the USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) irrefutably few months ago. This man has taken the substances to improve their performance. has denied it until today, but there was little doubt. This confession should have been produced before a competent court, where he had been forced to name names, involve leaders, the environment that supplied products, when, where and what brokers were involved. "

Pat McQuaid (President of the International Cycling Union ): "It is an important step forward on the long road to repair the damage it has caused to cycling and restore confidence in the sport. Lance Armstrong confirmed that there was no collusion or conspiracy between UCI and Lance Armstrong. camouflaged No positive controls and confirmed that the donations were made ​​to the UCI to combat doping. Lance Armstrong also said, rightly, that cycling is a sport very different from what it was ten years ago . was upsetting to hear describing a litany of offenses, how was doped during his career, how he led a team that is doping, the use of intimidation, systematic lies everyone or prescriptions with false dates to justify the result of control ".

Hein Verbruggen (former president of the International Cycling Union): "After years of mistrust, I'm happy (to note) that this conspiracy theory was not, after all, only a theory never proved. Everyone accused or suspected are undoubtedly disappointed (by the statements of Armstrong). never hid anything and under my direction, the UCI always fought against doping.'s a good thing that Lance Armstrong has finally admitted doping.'s no surprise that it has fact ".

Travis Tygart (president of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency ): "It is a small step in the right direction. finally admitted that his career was cemented on a powerful blend of doping and cheating. If you are sincere in your desire to rectify past mistakes, testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities. "

Livestrong Foundation (founded by Armstrong fighting cancer): "We are disappointed by reports that Lance Armstrong cheated people during and after his cycling career, including ourselves. Earlier this week, apologized to Lance our staff and we accept his apology. expect to devote all our energy to our mission of helping people, not only to fight and survive cancer, but also to succeed in life after cancer. Lance is no longer in the Foundation , but he is our founder and always be grateful for having created and helped create a foundation that has served millions of people battling cancer. "

Andy Schleck (cyclist and 2010 Tour winner): "Everything is a little late. Lance was someone well, but of course I'm disappointed now that I know how he managed his victories in the Tour de France. "

Novak Djokovic (number one tennis): "Lance Armstrong is a disgrace to the sport.would be foolish on their part to deny the evidence, as there were thousands of tests.'s a shame for the sport to have an athlete like him. has deceived sport. has deceived many people around the world with her ​​career, with its history. You should remove all titles. has deserved to suffer. Like many people, I lost confidence in the world of cycling. before I followed him . All these great champions, Marco Pantani, Lance Armstrong .... now there have been so many scandals. "

Maria Sharapova (number two women's tennis): "It's a really sad story, sad for the sport itself.'m happy that our sport is clean, and we constantly monitor. better the more we are controlled either with tests urine or blood, as we are all here to make the sport as clean as possible. "
