Lance Armstrong is a professional cyclist who has since retired. He won the Tour De France competition seven consecutive times and is known for his struggle to survive cancer while competing in international competitions. He also won a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympics. In 1996, at the peak of his career, Armstrong was diagnosed with potentially fatal testicular cancer. After recovering, Lance founded the Lance Armstrong Foundation to help other cancer survivors. In 1999, Armstrong was accused of doping, and in 2012 the United States Anti-Doping Agency concluded that Lance had been using performance-enhancing drugs and stripped him of his titles since 1998. He was asked to step down from the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which was renamed the Livestrong Foundation in 2013.
