Lance Armstrong Slams Alex Rodriguez, Calling Out Society’s ‘Double Standard’ Following Their Doping Scandals

Lance Armstrong is speaking out about the “terrible” last six years.

The defamed cyclist, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after admitting to doping, is calling out society’s so-called “double standard” following the scandal.

Armstong, 47, told CNBC that he wonders why fellow admitted doper Alex Rodriguez has pretty much been forgiven by the world.

“I do think there’s a double standard,” he told Andrew Sorkin.

He later referred to his work with the Livestrong Foundation, “A-Rod didn’t raise half a billion dollars and try to save people’s lives.”

Armstrong added, “Look, it’s great when somebody hits home runs and maybe does an event here and there for the Boys & Girls Club.”

And regardless of the controversy, “I don’t feel like a failure,” Armstrong said. “And I’ve never felt like a failure since then.”

But he does wish things were different, “I don’t know if it’s fraud – you can call it whatever you wanna call it,” he said. “It doesn’t matter, right? I mean, it’s fraud, betrayal, feeling complicit, all of these things that we know people felt. That’s on me. I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to make that right.”
