Stripped of a whole lot of victories, we bet one of the most painful ones to see go is the stripping of his 2000 Summer Olympics win in Sydney. Then again, he was doping, so we don't really feel that bad for him.
Lance Armstrong has returned his Olympic bronze cycling medal, because that's what happens when you're a cheater!
He tweeted a pic of the medal today (above), along with this:

Book your tickets to Tokyo now!
The city has just been announced as the host city for the 2020 Summer Olympics as the International Olympic Committee revealed they beat out Istanbul and Madrid.
This will be the second time Tokyo is hosting the games as the city previously had them in 1964.
We know it's still a long way off, but with an AH-Mazing city like Tokyo, you know those games will be over-the-top fierce!

Sophia Bush threw some serious shade at the Kremlin, and we loved it!
Sophia took to Twitter on Monday calling for an all out boycott of Russia, and the upcoming Winter Olympics as a response to the punitive anti-gay laws currently in place, as well as a recently documented incident of intolerance, where five Russian men beat up a trans woman.
Ch-ch-check out her moving and strongly worded tweets…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The NHL has finally come to a deal with the International Ice Hockey Federation… and guess what?? The NHL's players can play in the Olympics!
The matter of contention here is that they'll have to put next season on hold — which is going to be costly, because last season the same thing happened due to the lockout! At least it'll be for a better reason this time around!

We totally agree with this!!
Tony Hawk is on a warpath to get skateboarding to be recognized as an official Olympic sport — and we say, if snowboarding is allowed, why isn't skateboarding??
Tony was asked about wrestling getting the Olympic boot, here's what he had to say:

Ryan Lochte is an enigma.
He's done one of the most prestigious things that a human being can do — he has won an Olympic gold medal. No joke, there are people that dream of representing our country in such a fab way!
But then literally everything else he's ever done is like the opposite of winning Olympic gold. He has a reality show on the way, collects "grills," and misses the point of iconic album covers. Now, we can add to that list: a hotdog is being named after him!
