Lance Armstrong Reportedly Considers Admitting Doping

New York Times reports he's looking for way to resume triathlons

The New York Times reported this weekend that Lance Armstrong was considering admitting having taken performance enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his competitive cycling career.  According to the article, he has discussed the possibility with friends and anti-doping officials.

The surprise development, unconfirmed by Armstrong, was described as a possible way for him to put longstanding doping charges behind him and to resume his athletic career as a triathlete.

Such an admission would have its own set of complications, however, according to analysts in the pro cycling community.  Armstrong is involved in several civil suits alleging doping in the past, and an admission of wrongdoing wouldn't necessarily allow for an immediate comeback in any case.
