Lance Armstrong to Open Up About Doping Scandal on Oprah’s Next Chapter

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


Lance Armstrong will appear on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” later this month, marking his first in-depth interview since he was stripped of his cycling wins last fall.

The former Tour de France champion is expected to “address the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career,” says OWN.

In October, Armstrong was officially stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s decision to bar the athlete from competitive cycling for life.

That came after the athelete’s own decision in August to no longer fight the doping charges that have dogged him for years.

The special 90-minute edition of “Next Chapter,” which will be taped at the disgraced cyclist’s Austin home, will air on January 17.
