We're only a few weeks into 2013, but we already have an undisputed winner for the least surprising confession of the year.
In his two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey, Lance Armstrong admitted to taking a pharmacy of performance-enhancing drugs while winning his seven Tour de France titles, including banned substances, EPO, testosterone, cortisone and human growth hormone, all while performing blood doping and transfusions.
"This story was so perfect for so long. It's this myth, this perfect story, and it wasn't true. I'm a flawed character," he said.
However, Lance is far from being out of the woods after his televised apology. There's the possibility he could end up in jail for lying under oath about never using performance-enhancing drugs and he's now facing numerous six and seven-figure lawsuits. And many in the athletic world are accusing him of only partially confessing. "If he is sincere in his desire to correct his past mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities," said U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart.
