A prominent library in Sydney has announced what appears to be one of the first repercussions of Lance Armstrong’s tell-all interview with Oprah over the weekend. The Australian reports that Manly Library recently placed a sign in its premises indicating that titles such as “Lance Armstrong: Images of a Champion” and “Lance Armstrong: World’s Greatest Champion” will be moved to the fiction section.
The shift in genre is likely to be the least of the disgraced cyclist’s concerns. In his interview with Oprah – aired over multiple channels, even in Malaysia’s cable network – Armstrong finally admitted to systematic doping for almost his entire career. Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from the sport in October last year after a US Anti Doping Agency (USADA) found evidence that Armstrong led “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping programme that sport has ever seen”. The admission opens Armstrong to plenty of potential lawsuits, where Armstrong has won many against him throughout his career.
In addition, there are already reports suggesting that Armstrong has continued his web of lies in his interview, with regards to the 2004 incident where one of Armstrong’s representatives attempted to donate a significant amount of money to the USADA. Cycling Weekly reports that the agency’s CEO at the time, Terry Madden, confirmed the incident, which may be seen as attempted bribery.
It remains to be seen just how big the ramifications are, but chances are we’ve not seen the worst of it just yet.
