Lance Armstrong won't interview under oath with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to reveal all he knows about doping in cycling, his attorney said on Wednesday. USADA officials had told Armstrong he must speak with them if he wanted to reduce his lifetime ban from sports. Wednesday was the deadline for him to agree to the interview.
After more than two months of negotiations, Armstrong attorney Tim Herman said the disgraced cyclist won't participate in a process designed ``only to demonise selected individuals.'' Armstrong said previously he was willing to participate in an international effort to clean up cycling, that was largely based in Europe.
Last year, the USADA released a report that detailed extensive doping on his seven Tour de France winning teams and stripped him of the titles. Armstrong admitted last month that he doped.
"We remain hopeful that an international effort will be mounted and we will do everything we can to facilitate that result," Herman said in a statement. "Lance will not participate in USADA's efforts to selectively conduct American prosecutions that only demonise selected individuals while failing to address the 95 percent of the sport over which USADA has no jurisdiction."
