– Lance Armstrong
Frankly - this may not be the most popular answer - but I think I deserve it [to be able to compete again], maybe not right now. But if you look at the situation, you look at the culture, and the sport, and you see the punishments. Okay you are trading my story for a sixth month suspension? That's what everybody got. So I got a death penalty (can never compete again). I am not saying that is unfair necessarily, but I am saying it is different.
Lance Armstrong said he felt "ashamed and humbled" during the second round of his interview with Oprah. He said he would like to return to competitive sport, and became emotional whilst talking of the impact of the scandal on his family.
