Cycling champion Lance Armstrong announced Thursday night that he’ll stop fighting the charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong is still proclaiming his innocence.

The toll this has taken on my family, and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today – finished with this nonsense. Read the complete statement here.
