Lance Armstrong is planning to make a return to competitive sport as a swimmer this weekend.
The disgraced American cyclist is entered for the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships, which takes place at the University of Texas.
Armstrong is set to compete in freestyle races over 500 yards, 1,000 yards and 1,650 yards at the event in his home city of Austin.
Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles last year for being part of a doping scandal.
