Lance Armstrong Considers Doping Admission To Limit Damage

Lead in text: 
A New York Times article reveals that the cyclist is facing mounting pressure from his support network -- which includes wealthy donors to his Livestrong foundation -- to clear his conscious and admit to using performance-enhancing drugs. The article also points out that Armstrong has been wanting to compete in triathlons and other events; events that usually adhere to World Anti-Doping Code regulations, from which he has received a lifetime ban.
Lance Armstrong, who this fall was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for doping and barred for life from competing in all Olympic sports, has told associates and antidoping officials that he is considering publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career, according to several people with direct knowledge of the situation.
