Cycling officials want Armstrong under oathA televised confession isn’t enough. Anti-doping officials want the disgraced cyclist to admit his guilt under oath before considering whether to lift a lifetime ban clouding his future as a competitive athlete.
Interviewer Oprah Winfrey didn’t say if the subject was broached during the taping Monday at a downtown Austin hotel in Texas. In an appearance on “CBS This Morning,” she declined to give details of what Armstrong told her.
Asked whether he appeared genuinely contrite after a decade of fierce denials, Winfrey replied, “I felt that he was thoughtful, I thought that he was serious, I thought that he certainly had prepared for this moment. I would say that he met the moment.”
