AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The New York Times is reporting Friday that Lance Armstrong - who has strongly denied the doping charges that led to him being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles - has told associates he is considering admitting he used performance-enhancing drugs.
The report is based on anonymous sources and says Armstrong is considering a confession to help restore his athletic career in triathlons and running events at age 41. Armstrong was been banned for life from cycling and cannot compete in athletic events sanctioned by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Yet Armstrong attorney Tim Herman denies that the cyclist has reached out to USADA chief executive Travis Tygart and David Howman, director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Herman tells The Associated Press he has no knowledge of Armstrong considering a confession and said, "When, and if, Lance has something to say, there won't be any secret about it."
