Oh No! American Cyclist Stripped Of His Gold Medal!

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has formally stripped a gold medal from American cyclist Tyler Hamilton!

He won the medal in the 2004 Athens road race time trial but ever since admitting to blood doping the IOC has been moving to take the medal back.

The gold medal now goes to Russian Viatcheslav Ekimov, with American Bobby Julich being bumped from bronze to silver and Michael Rogers of Australia from fourth to bronze!

That must be amazing and frustrating. The Australian would've had the bronze all along if only this man hadn't cheated! But at least now, he's an official Olympic medalist!

After years and years of denial Hamilton finally admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs while on 60 Minutes.

He also accused Lance Armstrong of doing the same!

All we know is we're glad that he owned up to his cheating and the Olympic medals can now go to the right people!
