USADA’s ‘overwhelming’ case against Lance Armstrong

On Wednesday, at my kids’ school, at the outdoor amphitheater with the sun shining bright in the brilliant blue of an October California morning sky, I had the privilege of moderating a panel at which four U.S. Olympians spoke about dreams, goals, hard work and effort.

Steve Lewis, the 1988 gold medalist in the 400 meters, delighted everyone with the tale of how he won when nobody thought he could. Courtney Mathewson talked about how the 2012 U.S. women’s water polo team came together to win gold for the very first time. Nicole Davis, the U.S. women’s volleyball libero, spoke about how persistence and effort had driven her and the team to silver in 2008 and 2012.
