Nike And Lance Armstrong Part Ways

Lance Armstrong splitting from Nike

Today Lance Armstrong and Nike part ways and there was something modern and telling about the way the news had covered it, as if an exhaustive report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency featuring damning testimony by 11 ex-teammates—or the possible stripping of his seven Tour de France titles—was just a mild prelude to the shame that would accompany the loss of a sneaker company’s endorsement.

That is the world we live in we like to build products with our sports athletes and that is what we did with Lance wanted him to be the best for performance  Its good to see that Nike is taking a stand with some of the sports they endorse.

Lance Armstrong is being banned from Nike for life because of the substances that he took while he was competing.
