article imageLance Armstrong to compete again

Austin - Lance Armstrong is set to return to competition this weekend. However instead of jumping on a saddle this time he will be jumping in the pool.
Armstrong will compete at the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships this weekend and is sure to raise a few eyebrows around the pool.
After receiving a lifetime ban from the U.S anti doping agency and being stripped of his cycling medals Armstrong has chosen to jump in at the deep end and compete in three races at the meeting hosted by Longhorn Aquatics and held at the Jamial Texas swim center in Austin.
Armstrong, who had won the Tour de France seven times before being disqualified, is able to compete in this weekend’s swim event as the U.S master’s swimming isn’t included in the anti doping agency. In fact the master’s swimming competition doesn’t hold drug tests at all for the swimmers. The former cycler has entered himself in the 500, 1,000 and 1,650 yard freestyles. And his background in triathlons, he was preparing for a new career in triathlon before his ban, should stand him in good stead for the three events.
