Austin, Texas – Former professional racing cyclist Lance Armstrong named names of those who allegedly knew about his use of performance enhancing drugs in written testimony. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), he further insisted that he did not provide payment to any person or organization in an effort to keep the matter private.
As noted by the AP, the sworn testimony was provided in answers to questions from a previously settled lawsuit. The documents, which had not been disclosed prior, were filed as part of a federal whistleblower lawsuit this week.
Armstrong is quoted as stating in his written answers, “Armstrong has not paid or offered to pay someone to keep his or others’ doping a secret… However, Armstrong has, on occasion, provided benefits or made contributions to many people and institutions, some of whom may have been aware of, or suspected Armstrong’s use of performance-enhancing drugs and banned methods. Armstrong never provided any such benefits or contributions with the intent for it to be a payoff to keep doping a secret.”
The federal whistleblower lawsuit was filed over sponsorship of his team by the U.S. Postal Service.
