Lance Armstrong Loses More Sponsors, Steps Down From Livestrong
Written by Pat's Papers | Thursday, 18 October 2012 8:07 AM
It wasn’t just Nike ... it was pretty much his entire list of sponsors. Lance Armstrong has seen most of his sponsors drop by the wayside, a week after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a 1,000-page report detailing his involvement in a doping scandal. The American-Statesman says he also stepped down as chairman of his Austin-based charity Livestrong yesterday. It’s bad timing for Armstrong, who has called the doping allegations a “witch hunt”—the charity’s annual Livestrong fundraiser, which includes an Armstrong-led bike ride with 3,700 riders, starts tomorrow.
