(Newser) – Lance Armstrong gave an emotional apology to Livestrong staff today before heading off to his interview with Oprah Winfrey, reports ABC News. His "sincere and heartfelt apology" left some of the 100 Livestrong Foundation staffers in tears at their Austin, Texas, headquarters, said a spokeswoman. She refused to say whether Armstrong copped to doping, but said the disgraced cyclist "took responsibility" for the problems he had brought the foundation. An insider tells the AP that he made no direct confession, but did choke up during the session and told them, "I'm sorry."

One of the biggest cheats of all time in any sport. Hes made 100 million from cycling because he won on steroids. He fired riders who would not play his dirty game.He sued and won money from English newspaper who suugested he doped. When testers showed up he would not be around. The scumbag should go to jail
