Regardless of the leaks, no one knows exactly what Lance Armstrong told Oprah. We’ll all find out when it airs Thursday, but according to one IOC member who spoke with Reuters, the interview could have drastic implications on the sport.
Apparently, former World Anti-doping President Dick Pound said that if Armstrong can prove that members of the International Cycling Union assisted in covering up the seemingly wide-spread doping scheme, then the IOC will have no choice but to consider dropping cycling from the Olympics.
“The only way it is going to clean up is if all these people say ‘Hey, we’re no longer in the Olympics and that’s where we want to be so let’s earn our way back into it,” Pound said. “The IOC would have to deal with it, the [UCI] is not known for its strong actions to anti-doping.”
