The anti-doping effort in Major League Baseball gained significant ground Thursday after the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association announced a tweak to their Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
In a statement released late Thursday night, celebrated cyclist Lance Armstrong announced he would no longer fight charges that he used performance enhancing drugs throughout his esteemed career. “There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, enough is enough,” Armstrong’s statement read. “For me, that time is now.”
A federal judge in Austin, Texas, has thrown out Lance Armstrong’s lawsuit against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, an attempt to stop the drug case against the seven-time Tour de France winner.
