Lance Armstrong sat down with Oprah Winfrey yesterday [Jan. 14th] and has come clean on allegations of doping. The seven time Tour de France champion confessed to the media queen during a two and-a-half hour sit down at a downtown Austin hotel for her OWN channel.
Oprah sat down today [Jan. 15th] with CBS This Morning, to discuss her interview, as it seemed the word leaked on his admission to doping, after years of strongly denying the accusations. She said:
“…by the time I left Austin and landed in Chicago you all had already confirmed it.”
She also said that he came prepared for the occasion:
“I would say that he met the moment.
” he did not come clean in the manner that I expected,” but she was “satisfied by the answers.
That Oprah effect is BIG! Lance world dare anyone to accuse him and never back down when someone accused of what he now admits as the truth!
Lance Amstrong also visited with the headquarters of his charity Livestrong right before talking with Lady O. The famous cyclist held a conference with about 100 Livestrong staff members where he said “I’m sorry”. He openly expressed regret over the controversy and even choked up while speaking. He left some of his members in tears!
The first of a two part interview with Oprah will air on OWN Thursday, January 17 (9:00 – 10:30 p.m. ET/PT). The interview will also be streamed LIVE worldwide on Oprah.com.
