When is the doping madness going to stop???
It's been enough that we've had to deal with Lance Armstrong's doping scandal, but now Olympic discus silver medalist, Darya Pishchalnikova has been banned from the Olympics for 10 years, and is also set to get her medal taken away.
Last year, Pishchalnikova received a silver medal at the London Olympics, but after she tested positive for the illegal drug Oxandrilone, she won't be able to compete for a whole decade.
Federation president, Valentin Balakhnichev said:
While we think it's completely fine for Lance Armstrong to run to get his health up, we just hope that he's not running to try to compete again.
Earlier today, the biker hit the streets of Austin, TX to go for a shirtless run, and since he just found out that he's officially getting sued by the Justice Department, we're pretty sure he had a lot on his mind.
Running is sometimes the best remedy to burn off some steam, but in Lance's case, he may need to sprint for a very long time in order to forget about his troubles.
We're not sure if Armstrong is getting in shape in hopes to get into a competition, but whatever he's doing, we can only wish that he's doing it for himself — at this point we'd say that's for the best!

The U.S. Department of Justice's lawsuit that was looming in the distance has now crashed down on top of Lance Armstrong, and we're hearing that someone who used to love him might have to testify against him!
Lance better hope there's a little love left, which we wouldn't bet on, because Kristin Armstrong is his EX-WIFE!
The DoJ filed a 33 page court document, and brings about the possibility that she may be called as a witness in the trial.
Did you think Lance Armstrong could come half-way clean and everyone would just forget about what he did??
NOPE! The U.S. Justice Department has officially filed a lawsuit against Lance (it was inevitable) and his company Tailwind Sports for the millions of dollars that the U.S. Postal Service used in sponsoring the cycling team! We'd say they have every right to, too!
So how much are they going for?
If the walls at Lance Armstrong's spacious 1.7-acre estate in Austin, Tex. could talk, what secrets would they divulge??
Well, if the new owner can get inanimate objects to talk, we'll soon find out! LOLz!
The new owner took out a $3.1 million loan to purchase the Central Austin property. Originally the house was listed at $10 million; in 2012, the estate was listed for
Earlier this month, Lance Armstrong was denied the chance to swim in the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships, but just 'cuz he can't swim, doesn't mean that he can't run.
While we think it's great that the former biker is keeping in shape, we don't think he should be training, but from his tweet, it seems like that's exactly what he's doing.
Hey Lance Armstrong!
We're sorry to hear that you're unable to take part in a swimming competition in Texas, but maybe you shouldn't have cheated in sports for all those years and then followed it all up with lies. You'd probably be able to compete in anything you wanted had you not done that! Just sayin'!
Armstrong wanted to compete at the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships in his home town of Austin this weekend. It has nothing to do with cycling, it isn't subjected to USA or World Anti-Doping Agency codes. No prob, right?
