Olympic Committee Wants Armstrong to Return Medal

Posted: Updated:

Lance Armstrong has been asked by the International Olympic Committee to return his bronze medal from the 2000 Sydney Olympics because of his involvement in doping.

The IOC reportedly sent a letter to Armstrong last night asking him to return it.

The IOC executive board discussed revoking the medal last month, but delayed a decision until cycling body UCI formally notified Armstrong he had been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and all results since 1998.
