A brief history of Lance Armstrong denying doping allegations (video)

Over the years, Lance Armstrong has denied doping allegations a lot.

Fortunately, he’s made these denials in very public forums and, via Buzzfeed, here’s a replay (with a warning for mild profanity). Armstrong is expected to admit to doping in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that is being taped in Austin, Texas, today and, as you can see, changing his tune on this matter is a pretty big matzoh ball hanging out there.

The interview will be shown at 9 p.m. Thursday on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on the Oprah Winfrey Network and will be streamed on

Armstrong has been so adamant over the years that Nike even made a commercial about it.
