Lance Armstrong l "My cocktail was EPO, transfusions and testosterone"


Former U.S. cyclist Lance Armstrong admitted that the last time he was doped in 2005, but did not in 2009 or 2010, which was when he returned to competition to run again the Tour de France. "Everything that was said about me in the report submitted by the USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) is correct, unless I dope the years 2009 and 2010, and that was what infuriated me, "Armstrong said during the interview that journalist underwent Oprah Winfrey . "That's what angered me and admit that." Before this statement,  Armstrong admitted to doping throughout his career as a professional and have taken all kinds of banned substances and blood transfusions have been done for better performance that won seven Tours. The interview, the first part of which aired Thursday night on the Oprah Winfrey Network, was held Monday in Austin (Texas, USA). The second part will air on Friday night. Under the format in which you can make and answer all questions as freely, without any hesitation Armstrong admitted having used performance-enhancing drugs, which led to him being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and be  suspended from lifetime sport. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) also sent a letter to Armstrong on Wednesday night to ask him to return his bronze medal in the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Some highlights of the interview Thursday night were:

Oprah: Did you ever take banned substances to improve their cycling performance?

Armstrong: Yes

- Was one of those banned substances EPO?

-Yes.

- Have you ever had a blood transfusion or blood used to improve your cycling performance?

-Yes.

- Have you ever used any banned substance such as testosterone, cortisone or human growth hormone?

-Yes.

-During the seven of his victories in the Tour de France, have you ever took was banned substances or blood transfusions?

-Yes.

- In your opinion, was humanly possible to win the Tour de France without doping seven times in a row?

-No, in my opinion.

-For the past 13 years has continued to deny blatantly and defiantly not doping and now, in this moment, just admit the opposite. So why now supports it?

-That's the better question. It is the most logical question ... I do not know, I think that I have a great answer. I'll start my answer by saying that this has come too late. It is also too late, probably, for most people, and that's my fault. I saw this as a big lie that I have repeated many times, and as you said, it was as if he had accepted the not and would not get out of that situation.

'Well, you were challenging ... You called others liars.

-I understand. And although I have lived through this process, especially in the last two years, one year, six months, two, three months, I know the truth. The truth had nothing to do with it and what I said already, now everything has been discovered. This story was so perfect for so long. And I mean how I try to see the situation and look. Supero disease, won the Tour de France seven times. I have a happy marriage, children. I mean, it's just perfect mythic history, and it was not true.

- And that was not true?

And that was wrong on so many levels.

- Was it difficult to live up to that image that has been created?

'Impossible. Certainly, I am an imperfect character, as you know, and I could not do that.But what we see now and what's the other reality shows now.
Armstrong also was categorical when he said that was not possible, at the time, to win the Tour without doping, but did not want to talk about the other fellow cyclists.

"I'm here to admit my mistakes and apologize. The five that were doped in those Tour de France were the real heroes , "said Armstrong. "Our system was professional and smart , safe, with caution, but our doping program was not the greatest. that culture did not invent, but did nothing to stop it. "

Speaking of the substances with which doping, Armstrong gave a clear and specific explanation of how he did it.

"My cocktail was EPO, transfusions and testosterone," he said of the substances used in the Tour de France. "I saw it very simple, I saw these methods to improve my performance and go faster. "

"The test system was not so complicated and few out of competition tests. During the race we were clean , "he said. 2005 was the last year that Armstrong resorted to doping, said. "If you ask me if someone forced him to team doparle or dismiss him, I can say no.had no instructions or orders that they had to. I was not the manager of the team ".

-You were the captain, the force said Oprah.

-Yes, I accept that, and I was the example.
