USADA applauds government action against ArmstrongFebruary 22, 2013
In a statement from USADA, CEO of the Agency, Travis T. Tygart, applauds the action from U.S. Department of Justice.
- As indicated in USADAs Reasoned Decision, the U.S. Postal Service Cycling Team was run as a fraudulent enterprise and individuals both inside and outside of sport aided and abetted this scheme and profited greatly.
- USADA applauds todays action by the U.S. Department of Justice which holds promise for returning the many millions of federal dollars in ill-gotten gains generated by this fraud. Those who violate the rules for personal financial gain and in the process harm numerous individuals, corporations and the public, should be held accountable whether their conduct was in sport, business, or any other important part of American society, the CEO says.
