Tyler Hamilton Gives Gold Medal to USADA
Tyler Hamilton has given his 2004 cycling gold medal to the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
In an interview with “60 Minutes” broadcast Thursday on the “CBS Evening News,” Hamilton admitted he doped and said Lance Armstrong did as well.
The International Olympic Committee had said it could strip Hamilton of his time trial gold at the Athens Olympics, but USADA released a statement Friday saying Hamilton had already handed over the medal.
Lance is not at all happy about 60 Minutes doing this story. He has launched a website in self-defense. I don’t know the truth of the matter, but I no longer defend Lance myself.

Statement of Mark Fabiani, Counsel to Lance Armstrong, in response to CBS Evening News story:
Tyler Hamilton is a confessed liar in search of a book deal – and he managed to dupe 60 Minutes, the CBS Evening News, and new anchor Scott Pelley. Most people, though, will see this for exactly what it is: More washed-up cyclists talking trash for cash.
