Lance Armstrong to Participate in Swimming Events
Lance Armstrong, the disgraced cyclist who admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs to win all of his Tour de France titles, is set to compete in swimming events.
Armstrong is signed up
to swim three events this weekend at the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships at the University of Texas. Armstrong's spokesperson said he would compete in three events in "the 40-44 age group in the 500, 1,000 and the 1,650 yards."
Armstrong is facing a Justice Department lawsuit and is prevented from competing in sporting events, including triathalons, which the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency sanctions. That agency barred him for life.
The swimming events, according to CBS, do not drug test, so Armstrong can compete in them.
