IOC condemns Lance Armstrong's actions

The International Olympic Committee (IOC), who stripped Lance Armstrong of his 2000 Sydney Games bronze medal yesterday, has condemned his drug-taking.

There can be no place for doping in sport and the IOC unreservedly condemns the actions of Lance Armstrong and all those who seek an unfair advantage against their fellow competitors by taking drugs.

We now urge Armstrong to present all the evidence he has to the appropriate anti-doping authorities so that we can bring an end to this dark episode and move forward, stronger and cleaner.
