(Newser) – Lance Armstrong's fireplace mantel could get a little emptier: The International Olympic Committee today announced that it will investigate the cyclist's 2000 Olympics win. Armstrong took a time trial bronze at Sydney, reports Reuters. "The IOC will now immediately start the process concerning the involvement of Lance Armstrong, other riders, and particularly their entourages with respect to the Olympic Games and their future involvement with the Games," says an IOC official. In other bad-to-worse Armstrong news, an English town plans to hang him in effigy.

After he pays back all the prize money he cheated to win he won't be able to afford a fireplace. He'll be riding his bike with his tent and backpack looking for a place where nobody knows him.
