Lance Armstrong probe is not over
The World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) has asked the government to hand over the evidence that they collected in their investigation into Lance Armstrong and doping in American cycling.  The Taylor Hooton Foundation supports this request and is hopeful that the government will turn over any relevant evidence that is has on the case. WADA officials said federal agencies in the United States gathered "significant evidence" in the criminal investigation that was abruptly closed last week with no charges filed and no explanation given. Execs at WADA said it would be very helpful to the doping officials if that information was turned over to USADA (US Anti Doping Agency).  USADA has not wrapped up its probe into doing in the world of cycling. Federal prosecutors dropped the investigation of Armstrong last Friday, ending a nearly two-year effort aimed at determining whether the world’s most famous cyclist and his teammates joined in a doping program during his greatest years. "There has been significant evidence taken on anti-doping areas, on what may have occurred in the way of doping. It would be very, very helpful if that information was handed over," Fahey said of the U.S. probe that was led by federal agent Jeff Novitzky, who also investigated baseball players Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens.
