US Masters Swimming Executive Director Rob Butcher confirmed that disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has pulled out three events he was scheduled to appear in this weekend.
Butcher told the Associated Press that the change of heart was likely caused by objections raised by FINA, the international governing body for swimming.
He doesn't want to cause any more harm to any more organisations. His interest was around fitness and training. In light of FINA and the other political stuff, he will not be swimming.
