doping claims, cyclist Lance Armstrong has admitted to Oprah

France titles. A person familiar with the situation

during an interview taping, which is slated to
air on Thursday on her network.
was stripped of all seven Tour titles and banned for life last year by a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency after it was discovered that he used performance enhancement drugs to win.
Hehad a meeting last month with US Anti-Doping Agency officials, and they said they were willing to reduce his life ban if he
would testify against the people who helped him dope.
