More Fallout from the USADA's Case Against Lance Armstrong
Nike has severed its ties with Lance Armstrong, and Armstrong has stepped down as Chairman of Livestrong, the cancer-fighting charity he founded several years ago (see here). Just last year, Livestrong contributed nearly 30 million dollars to cancer research and support programs. We can only hope that Livestrong continues to thrive despite the disgrace of its founder. It would be a terrible thing if the most important practical effect of the USADA's efforts to bring down Armstrong (and, of course, Armstrong's own personal failings) was to set back funding for cancer research.
