Armstrong was diagnosed with stage three testicular cancer in 1996. The tumors had spread to his abdomen, lungs, and lymph nodes. Vaughters later testified that he saw Armstrong inject himself in the stomach in 1998. (AP Photo/Michel Spingler, File)

Lance Armstrong fell from grace the way Hemingway described bankruptcy: gradually, and then suddenly. Accused for years of being involved in a wide-ranging doping scandal, Armstrong was stripped of most of his honors, including his seven Tour de France titles. In January 2013, he finally came clean about his doping usage in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
