Lance Armstrong's fall from grace

Associated Press
FILE - In this July 20, 2005, file photo, overall leader Lance Armstrong, left, of Austin, Texas, talks with Tour de France vice director general Christian Prudhomme, of France, before Prudhomme gave the official start for the 17th stage of the Tour de France cycling race between Pau and Revel, southwestern France. Admitting he cheated was a start. Now, it's all about whether Armstrong is ready to give details, lots of them, to clean up his sport. “We're left wanting more. We have to know more about the system," Prudhomme told the AP. "He couldn't have done it alone. We have to know who in his entourage helped him to do this.”(AP Photo/Christophe Ena, 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.
