Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to admit to doping during Oprah Winfrey interview

AUSTIN, Texas Lance Armstrong will make a limited confession to doping during his televised interview with Oprah Winfrey next week, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Armstrong, who has long denied doping, will also offer an apology during the interview scheduled to be taped Monday at his home in Austin, Texas, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no authorization to speak publicly on the matter.

While not directly saying he would confess or apologize, Armstrong sent a text message to The Associated Press early Saturday that said: I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and Ill answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. Thats all I can say.

A confession would be a dramatic break from more than 13 years of vehement denials from Armstrong that he took performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France seven times.

All these years I really thought all the doping allegations was just sour grapes.

1. If he wants have a reasonable legacy,

he's got to come clean, stop the politics. His sin was lying for years about a toxic system that he made use of.

2. This makes me sad.

Lance Armstrong was one of the few athletes I regarded as a hero.
